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.
