Police are looking for a man who allegedly punched and drew a gun at a woman after he stole her phone on a Brooklyn subway earlier this week.
On April 25 at about 12:30 p.m. the suspect — described as a black man between 18 and 20 years old — approached the 31-year-old victim while onboard the northbound 2 train, according to authorities.
While the train was pulling into the Beverly Road subway station, the man took the woman’s Android phone and ran away — with the victim chasing after him, police said.
When the victim caught up with him, the suspect allegedly punched her in the face and pointed a gun at her, cops said.
Emergency personnel took the victim to a local hospital where she was treated for bruising to the eye and face.
The NYPD described the man to be about 6 feet tall and between 150 and 160 pounds.
Anyone with information in regards 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).
