Cops are looking for a suspect who slugged a man who was walking down a Bronx street.

According to police, at 11:45 a.m. on March 29 a 61-year-old man was walking in front of 4 East Burnside Avenue when he was approached by an unknown man. The suspect proceeded to punch the man in the face, knocking him to the ground and rendering him unconscious.

The suspect then boarded an eastbound BX40 Bus in the immediate vicinity of the incident location.
