Cops are looking for the careless motorcyclist who ran over a 76-year-old woman on a Manhattan street last month and took off from the scene.

Police released on Monday night graphic video of the hit-and-run that occurred at 6:24 p.m. on May 25 along West 162nd Street near Broadway in Washington Heights.

Law enforcement sources said the victim attempted to cross the residential street mid-block when the motorcyclist struck her while heading eastbound on the roadway. 


Despite hitting her, authorities said, the motorcyclist kept going eastbound on 162nd Street and fled.

Officers from the 33rd Precinct and EMS units responded to the incident. The victim was treated for a fractured right arm at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center.

Police described the suspect as a man with a dark complexion who wore a light-colored helmet, a red mask around his neck, a multi-colored jacket, light-colored jeans and black sneakers.
