April 5, 2021 By Christian Murray

A man punched a 62-year-old woman in the throat onboard a southbound E train last month as it was approaching the Broadway/Roosevelt Avenue train station.

The suspect, believed to be in his twenties, allegedly approached the woman on the subway at around 5:25 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24 and punched her.

The unknown man then fled the train at the Broadway/Roosevelt Avenue stop and boarded a northbound F train.

A police spokesperson was unsure what the motive for the attack was– if any.

The victim sustained an injury to her neck, but refused medical treatment at the scene.

The suspect is described as being around 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a dark colored jacket, blue shirt, dark colored pants and was carrying a dark colored backpack.

The police have released a photo of the suspect.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspect is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM.
