A 47-year-old woman was punched in the head while waiting for a train at a Long Island City subway station Tuesday.

The victim was waiting for an E train inside the Queens Plaza subway station just before 6 p.m. when an unidentified man approached her and slugged her several times in the head without provocation, according to police.

The perpetrator then fled the scene on foot. He did not say anything to the woman during the assault, police said.

The victim, who suffered a broken nose and multiple bruises to her face, was transported by EMS in stable condition to New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital.

Police released video footage of the suspect taken from inside the Queens Plaza subway station.

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 Crime Stoppers website at or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

DeBlasio thinks that NYC is SAFE?
He thinks people and businesses
Will return with subway shovings and Times Square shootings along with homeless all over and
Needles in parks . Trash on strerts. Drugstores being robbed. Criminals put on the street the same day. Police handcuffed by
DeBlasio and other Politicians .
Privrs for tents both for tenamts and businesses are off the charts ecpensive. Keep these policies up and there won’ t be much of NYC left. Peoplevand business will be fed up. Do mot forget fares going ip by incompetent and Wasteful MTA. Letbus not forget Ex Gov. Cuomo giving $2 billion to illegal
Immigrants to claim money because they did not get stimulus checks. They could qualify for
$15,600 down to $3.200 retroactive to March 2020? Could not this money have been better used for Keeping down fares in the MTA or HELP homeless people.
Somethong positive
Not to lawbreakers who should be deported. Remember DeBlasio certified NYC a Sanctuary city in 2014.


Crime is getting wotse .LIC used to be fairly safe. Not anymoe . He
Did not payba fare. Eric Adams does notbwsntntomprosecutebfare beaters, neither do DA’ s .
Soft on Crime Socialist Democrats. No Bail laws etc…
