Police have released video of a 66-year-old man being punched in the face in an unprovoked attack at a Jackson Heights subway station last month.

The victim was walking inside the 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue station on Oct. 31 at around 4 p.m. when the perpetrator approached him and sucker-punched him without cause, police said.

The video shows the straphanger being hit and then slumping to the ground. Police said he suffered a broken jaw.

The suspect then fled the scene on a Flushing bound 7 train, cops said.

The assailant is described as black, between 5 feet 6 inches, and 5 feet 8 inches tall. He weighs around 160 pounds and was last seen wearing a blue-colored mask, blue headphones, a black jacket, black pants and pink sneakers.

Anyone with information in regard 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).

The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/ or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
