Police are looking for a man they say attacked a 74-year-old woman as she made her way into a Queens subway station earlier this month.


On May 1 at about 5:15 p.m. the victim was waking down the stairs of the 65th Street station when the suspect — described as a black man between 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall — got into her face as he walked up the stairs, according to authorities.


The man then allegedly punched the elderly woman in the head once and ran up the stairs onto the street, police said.
