A 22-year-old Asian man was assaulted in an unprovoked attack in a Long Island City subway station last month—and police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.

Police released video today of the suspect who allegedly approached the victim from behind at the Queens Plaza subway station and punched him. The incident took place on Sunday, April 28 at around 1:30 p.m.

The victim was repeatedly punched in the back and chest, and refused medical attention. A police spokesperson said the incident is being investigated as a hate crime since the victim is Asian and the attack was unprovoked. No words were reportedly exchanged between the attacker and victim during the incident.

Police released video of the suspect taken at the subway near the Jackson Avenue and Queens Boulevard entrance.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspect is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
