Cops have released photos of a suspect wanted in a bias assault on a No. 7 train.

Police have released photos of the suspect who allegedly punched a Hispanic man, then made anti-Mexican statements towards him on a No. 7 train.

The 43-year-old victim was on a Queens-bound train about 4 p.m. Sunday when the suspect approached him and punched him twice in the face, then made the bias remarks, cops said. The suspect then fled at the Court Square station in Long Island City.

The victim sustained bruises to the nose and a lacerated lip, but refused medical aid at the scene, according to police.

Authorities describe the suspect as a black male, 6? tall and 165 pounds.

In addition to the surveillance photos, which were obtained from after the assault, police have also released a sketch of the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
