Police are searching for a man who they said made anti-gay slurs and punched a passerby in Brooklyn earlier this month. 

The suspect was walking on Lincoln Road in Prospect Lefferts Gardens at about 1:30 p.m. on April 4 when he started making the slurs at a 24-year-old man, police said.

The suspect then punched the victim in the left arm before fleeing east toward Flatbush Avenue. 

Police on Wednesday were looking to speak to a man wanted for questioning, described as about 25 to 35 years old and last seen wearing eyeglasses.
