Police from the 108th Precinct in Long Island City and Transit District 20 are looking for a man they believe carried out a brutal assault in the Queens Plaza subway station Tuesday evening.

A 47-year-old woman was waiting for the arrival of an E train just before 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 28, when she was approached by an unidentified man who punched her multiple times in the face, according to the NYPD.

The suspect fled on foot and the victim suffered a broken nose and multiple contusions on her face, police said.

EMS responded to the scene and transported the woman to NewYork-Presbyterian Queens Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.

The NYPD released images of the assailant who was wearing a dark wool cap, a mask and a long-sleeved shirt.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspects is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782).
