Police are searching for a man who allegedly assaulted a 24-year-old woman inside a Kew Gardens subway station earlier this month.

The suspect allegedly approached the woman – who was standing on the platform at the Kew Gardens-Union Turnpike station – and punched her in the face with a closed fist, according to police. The incident took place on the E and F Manhattan-bound platform at around 8:50 a.m. on Oct. 7.

The alleged perpetrator fled the station on foot following the attack, police said.
