Police have arrested a Manhattan man who allegedly made homophobic statements to a woman aboard an E train in Forest Hills before attacking her late last month.

Allasheed Allah, 54, was arrested today at around 9:30 a.m. and charged with assault and aggravated harassment that were both categorized as hate crimes.

Allah was allegedly aboard a Manhattan-bound E train on Nov. 30 when he approached a 20-year-old female passenger at around 5:10 p.m. and began directing homophobic slurs at her, based on his interpretation of her sexual orientation.

The 20-year-old began to walk away from her aggressor, but Allah allegedly punched her in the back of her head and shoved her to the ground.

The attacker then ran off the train at the Forest Hills-71st Ave Station, where he was last seen until his arrest.

The victim was treated in Elmhurst Hospital for her injuries.
