Police are looking for a teen they say attacked another girl at a Brooklyn subway station over what appeared to be nothing.
On June 12 at about 11 p.m. the suspect — described to be between 15 and 17 years old — began a verbal dispute with the 16-year-old victim inside the Jay Street-MetroTech subway station, according to authorities.
The suspect then punched and kicked the victim in the face, head and body, police said. The victim sustained scratches and bruising on her face and arms but refused medical attention at the scene.
According to police, it did not seem that the two girls knew each other prior to the assault.
The suspect is described to be 5 feet 7 inches tall and 140 pounds. She was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt, black jeans, black sneakers and a multi-colored shirt.
