A man punched a straphanger in the face as he exited a G train at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station Downtown on Sept. 5, police said.

The 35-year-old victim told police he was getting off the Queens-bound Brooklyn Local at 7:25 am when the guy sucker-punched him and took off running through the station, where the Police Department’s Transit Bureau District 30 is headquartered.

The suspect stands 5-feet-11 and weighs approximately 185 pounds, officers stated. He was wearing a dark polo shirt, blue jeans, and glasses on the morning of the attack, they said.

The NYPD asks those with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477, go to, or text-message tips to 274637 and enter “TIP577”.
