A 50-year-old man was punched multiple times in the face at a subway station in Long Island City during the early hours Wednesday morning, according to police.

The victim was aboard a Forest Hills-bound R train at around 12:15 a.m. when the suspect threw an unknown object at him while the train was at the Queens Plaza station. When the victim exited the train at the station, the suspect followed him onto the mezzanine level and punched him several times in the face.

The suspect, according to police, also struck the victim with a “wet floor” sign causing minor cuts and swelling to his face and lips. The alleged perpetrator then fled the station.

The victim was transported to NYC Health & Hospitals/Elmhurst in stable condition.

The suspect is described as being in his 50s and approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall. Police said he has a medium build, medium skin complexion and was wearing a turquoise T-shirt, light colored jeans and black sneakers.

Police released photos of the suspect.

Anyone with information in regard to the attack is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or, for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
