Police have released video of a 66-year-old man being punched in the face in an unprovoked attack at a Jackson Heights subway station last month.
The victim was walking inside the 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue station on Oct. 31 at around 4 p.m. when the perpetrator approached him and sucker-punched him without cause, police said.
The video shows the straphanger being hit and then slumping to the ground. Police said he suffered a broken jaw.
The suspect then fled the scene on a Flushing bound 7 train, cops said.
The assailant is described as black, between 5 feet 6 inches, and 5 feet 8 inches tall. He weighs around 160 pounds and was last seen wearing a blue-colored mask, blue headphones, a black jacket, black pants and pink sneakers.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/ or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.
And the bystanders in the video did nothing. We need more social workers on the subways.
Condescend the people having mental breakdowns. That’s why people hate social workers.
I saw this news footage on my international tv channels from Europe. So sad 😥.
Politicians, news officials, and law officials are really under estimating how scared people are to live in New York City.
Maybe he wanted a loaf of bread
You can thank Cuomo et al for this
This is awful. Guessing the guy who did it is mentally ill. Wishing a swift recovery for the victim.
Yet another young black man punching an innocent elderly person. He will likely get a slap on the wrist if he’s even caught. Where are the demonstrations like when it’s the other way around? This is a regular occurrence and no one seems to care as I often see by the comments, lack of news coverage etc. It’s a disgrace!
hopefully his identity will be released to the public so the family can get their own version of justice. just sayin.
Well I’m just shocked, shocked I tell ya!
Seriously, sometimes the death penalty is the only way to go. This individual does not deserve to live in our society.
Somebody call a social worker!
Giuliani wouldn’t go the way of (anti) social workers.
More cops, more guards more bars (on windows) more walls.
someone call charles bronson
Pfft. Giuliani was a ghoul then and he’s an even worse POS laughing stock now.
