Police are looking to question this man after a 56-year-old was brutally punched in Woodside early Saturday.


A 56-year-old man was left in critical condition after a stranger punched him in the face in an apparently unprovoked attack on a Woodside street, cops said.

The assault happened just after midnight Saturday on Roosevelt Avenue near 69th Street, according to police.

The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital.

Police describe the man who they are looking to question in connection to the attack as Hispanic, in his mid twenties and with facial hair. They have also released a photo of him, and said he was last seen wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans and a dark colored baseball cap.

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.
