Police are searching for a man who allegedly assaulted a 24-year-old woman inside a Kew Gardens subway station earlier this month.

The suspect allegedly approached the woman – who was standing on the platform at the Kew Gardens-Union Turnpike station – and punched her in the face with a closed fist, according to police. The incident took place on the E and F Manhattan-bound platform at around 8:50 a.m. on Oct. 7.

The alleged perpetrator fled the station on foot following the attack, police said.

Cops said the woman refused medical attention at the scene.

The perpetrator is described as being around 6 feet 1 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds. He has brown eyes, black short hair and was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt, blue jeans, white sneakers and a silver chain around his neck.

Police released video footage of the suspect.

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). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.

Let’s all give a round of applause to our local leaders and of course our wonderful Mayor. These individuals acted in concert and have ruined several great neighborhoods with their poor policies and neglect. I have not seen this area in this state since mid to late 80’s.

The description is hilarious… Whoever wrote this is so scared of being called “Racist” that they cannot even properly describe the suspect in the video. Was the suspect Asian? Hispanic? White? We’re just going to look for brown-eyed people with a silver “chain”? I am shocked you used the word “chain” since it may bring up the idea of slavery. C’mon now.
