Oct. 7, 2020, By Michael Dorgan

Police are searching for a suspect who allegedly assaulted a 32-year-old woman on a 7 train as it was approaching the Flushing-Main Street subway station last month.

The perpetrator got into a dispute with the woman while they were both riding an eastbound 7 train as it was pulling into the Flushing-Main Street subway station on Sept. 9 at around 6:30 p.m., according to police.

The suspect then punched the woman in the face with a closed fist, according to police.

The assailant then got off the train at the Flushing-Main Street station and headed for the exit and the woman chased after him. She eventually lost sight of him as he fled, police said.

The suspect was last seen walking westbound on Roosevelt Avenue before entering the Bland Houses complex in Flushing, located at 40-05 College Point Blvd.

The woman was transferred by EMS to New York-Presbyterian/Queens in Flushing where she was treated for lacerations and bruising to the face.

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 WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.
