Cops released video on Thursday of a bare-chested man who recently slapped a woman in the rear end as she waited for a train at a Ridgewood subway station.

Authorities said the incident took place at 4:55 a.m. on the morning of June 17 at the Halsey Street station on the L line, located in the vicinity of Wyckoff Avenue and Halsey Street.

According to law enforcement sources, the 26-year-old woman was waiting on the Manhattan-bound platform when the suspect approached her, smacked her in the buttocks and then fled the station southbound on Covert Street.  The incident was later reported to police.
