Police have released video footage of a man who punched a straphanger in the face at a Jackson Heights subway station last month.

On April 20, at around 10:05 a.m., the suspect got into a heated argument with a 53-year-old man on the Manhattan-bound 7 Train platform at the 74th St. Broadway station, police said.

The suspect then punched the 53-year-old in the face and in doing so knocked the victim’s cellphone from his hand, according to police.

The alleged perpetrator then fled the scene in an unknown location.

The victim suffered pain and bruising to his mouth. He refused medical attention at the scene, police said.

Police said that the victim subsequently recovered his cellphone.

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 Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
