The NYPD is looking for a man who smashed a metal chair over another person’s head inside of a bar in Astoria last month.

According to police, a 32-year-old man was inside Twist and Smash Bar – located at 34-02 Steinway St. – when an unidentified individual approached him from behind and hit him over the head with a metal chair, around 3 a.m., on Jan. 1.

The victim fell to the ground and sustained a cut to the back of the head during the attack, police say.

The individual fled on foot in an unknown direction.
