Cops are looking to question the pictured suspect about a Flushing assault

Cops are looking for a suspect who harassed passengers before punching a fellow rider on a Flushing subway train during rush hour earlier this month.

On Feb. 6 at around 7:32 p.m., according to police, an unidentified man was on a northbound 7 train when he began to harass passengers. He then approached a 36-year-old male victim and punched him in the face. No words were exchanged prior to the altercation, authorities said.

When the train arrived at the Main Street subway station, the suspect fled the station to parts unknown. The victim sustained bruising to the left side of his face and refused medical attention at the scene.

The incident was reported to the 109th Precinct and NYPD Transit District 20.

The suspect is described by police as a black male, approximately 25 years of age, 6 foot 5 inches tall and 190 pounds with black hair, brown eyes and a medium complexion. He was last seen wearing a blue work jacket, black baseball cap, black hooded sweatshirt and black pants.

Surveillance footage of the suspect leaving the Main Street subway station can be seen below.

 

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
