Police from the 104th Precinct in Ridgewood and Transit District 33 are looking for a man who assaulted a woman on board an L train at the Myrtle Avenue and Wyckoff Avenue subway station last month.

The unprovoked attack occurred at around 1:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 30.

Police say the 22-year-old woman was sitting on board a southbound L when an unidentified man approached her, grabbed her head and rammed it against a train door causing pain and swelling.
