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.
