The NYPD is looking for a man who allegedly punched a woman in the face while aboard a 7 train in Flushing last month.

On Wednesday, Sept. 9, around 6:30 p.m., a 32-year-old woman was riding on a Queens bound 7 train. As the train approached the Main Street station, the woman got into a verbal dispute with an unidentified man, according to the NYPD.

As the argument escalated, the man punched the woman in the face, cops said. When the train doors opened, the man exited the subway car into the station, according to the police. The 32-year-old chased after her attacker but lost him when he exited the station.

The woman was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Queens, where she was treated for cuts and bruising to her face.

Police say the man was last seen fleeing westbound on Roosevelt Avenue before entering 40-05 College Point Blvd.
