NYPD: Man Punched in Face on 7 Train as it Approached 46th Street/Bliss Station

Suspect (NYPD)

May 12, 2018 By Christian Murray

The police are looking for a man who allegedly punched a subway rider in the face on a Queens-bound No. 7 train as it was approaching the 46th Street/Bliss station in Sunnyside last week.

The suspect struck the victim, a 29-year-old man, without provocation at around 11:45 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, police said. The attacker allegedly then exited the train at the 46th Street/Bliss station and fled.

The victim was transported to Elmhurst General Hospital where he received care for a laceration and swelling to his lip, police said.

The suspect is described as Hispanic and about 6 feet 1 inches tall.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)

Maybe the man whom was punched could have possibly been blocking the doors.

These impervious snowflakes, always on their smart phones.

My guess is that the attack wasn’t random. Why else would there be such a clear photo of the man? Whoever took the photo clearly saw a reason to do so. If the victim took the photo, perhaps the attacker was annoyed at being photographed? I’m assuming that the photo was taken before the attack since it seems unlikely that you can get such a clear photo if the man was bolting out the door.

Who knows

Maybe they had been arguing or something and the person figured it may be a good idea to get a pic of this guy in case he does anything else. And then the guy punched him in the face for taking a pic. Who knows

If we had cameras in each train car, we wouldn’t be dealing with crap like this.
