Cops have charged a man who they say made anti-Muslim remarks at a teen girl aboard a Queens bus.

A man wanted for making anti-Muslim statements toward a 15-year-old girl aboard a Queens bus while spiting at the teen and threatening to punch her has been arrested, cops said.

Perry Germano, a 50-year-old Ozone Park resident, has been charged with attempted assault, aggravated harassment and menacing in connection to the incident, according to police.

The arrest comes about 24 hours after the NYPD released a photo of the suspect.

Germano is accused of harassing the victim on a Q88 bus near Harding Expressway and Kissena Boulevard about 9 a.m. on April 7, officials said.

After Germano spat at the teen, he allegedly raised his fist at her while saying he was going to punch her.
