The suspect fled when the train stopped at the Seneca Avenue station in an unknown direction.

The NYPD released surveillance video of the suspect on Tuesday as he entered a nearby convenience store and described him as having a light complexion, 5’6” in height, and approximately 30 years old.

He was wearing a pink hooded jacket over a powder blue hoodie. Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
