Police are searching for an armed suspect driving an SUV who followed a man leaving a Queens mosque and threatened to kill him while making anti-Muslim statements.

 

The victim left the mosque at 72-55 Kissena Blvd. about 8 p.m. on April 12. He was driving his car when he noticed he was being followed by a man in a dark-colored SUV, cops said.

 

When the victim stopped at a traffic light at Union Turnpike and 199th Street, the suspect pulled up next to the victim, pulled out a gun and threatened to kill him. He made anti-Muslim slurs before driving off.

 

The suspect is described as a white male in his late 50s, with dark hair and a mustache. He was last seen wearing a dark suit jacket with an emblem patch on the left pocket. He may have been driving a Toyota SUV with an unknown New York license plate.
