Police are searching for a woman who made a hateful remark before assaulting a man with an umbrella while riding the bus in Flushing earlier this month.

The incident was reported to the 109th Precinct; the victim suffered pain but did not require hospitalization.

Law enforcement agents described the suspect as having light skin and wearing glasses. She was last seen wearing a red baseball hat and a coat.
