Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying an individual who assaulted a man as he was exiting a subway station in Kew Gardens on April 21.
Around 2:45 p.m., a 35-year-old man exited a northbound F train at the Union Turnpike station when he was approached by an unidentified individual. The suspect punched the victim in the back of the head with a closed fist, causing him to fall to the ground. The victim did not remember what happened to him and complained of back pain.
The individual is described as a black man who is believed to be 30 years old. He was last seen wearing a yellow sweatshirt, black jeans and black sneakers and was carrying a black backpack.
