Detectives are looking for a man who punched an MTA conductor for no reason inside a Brooklyn subway station early Saturday morning. 

Authorities say that at 6:20 a.m. on Nov. 14, an on-duty 38-year-old female MTA train conductor was working on a southbound N train. When the train was at the Prospect Avenue subway station, an unknown man punched her in the face in an unprovoked attack while passengers were boarding the train.

The suspect fled the station on foot to parts unknown. The victim suffered pain and bruising to the face but refused medical attention at the scene.

The NYPD released a video and photo of a man, taken after the incident, who is wanted for questioning. He is described as a man between the ages of 20 and 30 years old.

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).
