Police are looking for a man they believe beat up another man on a subway last month.

On March 2 at 5:49 pm, the suspect was having an argument with the victim aboard a Brighton Beach-bound B train at the Kings Highway subway station. The man repeatedly punched the victim in the face during the dispute, causing injury, according to police.

“The unidentified individual punched the victim with a closed fist several times in the face and broke his glasses,” according to the police department.

The assailant fled the station in an unknown direction, police said, and the victim suffered a cut to his face and was treated at the scene.

The fight involved four people in total, and police arrested a Bushwick man at the scene. He was charged with reckless endangerment and assault, according to a police spokesman. They are now looking for the man who punched the victim in the face, the spokesman said.

The man was last seen wearing a leather jacket and had a cut on his face, according to a police surveillance photo.
