A 65-year-old man was punched and shoved at a D train station in the Bronx last week when he denied another man money, police said.
The man was in the mezzanine of the Norwood – 205th Street station around 5:15 a.m. on July 14 when he was approached by another man who demanded money, the NYPD said.

The NYPD said the suspect then fled. Police released surveillance footage of the suspect. He is described as black, approximately 25 years old and 5-foot-7 with black hair. Police said he was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.
