The police are looking for a man who assaulted a traffic agent in Astoria earlier this month—after being upset that he had been issued with a summons.

Police said the traffic agent, a 36-year-old woman, was writing the man a summons for double parking in front of GameStop at 31-58 Steinway St., when the enraged suspect came out of the video game store and confronted her at around 3 p.m. Oct. 14. The man then threw an aluminum bottle of soda at her.

The bottle hit the traffic agent’s elbow causing pain and swelling. The suspect got into his black Honda, with a New Jersey plate number of 770852R, and drove off.

The traffic agent declined medical attention on the scene.

The suspect is described as being around 18 to 20 years of age, thin building, black short hair and was last seen wearing a gray sweatsuit and carrying a book bag.

The police have released video of the suspect taken at GameStop.

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 WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.

Keep voting Democrat! Costa. AOC. Gianaris. JVB. All soft on crime. Allowing criminals to rob, rape, murder, and assault anyone they want to. Blame the victim. Blame the police. Figure out how to weave institutional racism and oppression into the narrative. Never speak out against criminal behavior. Waste taxpayer dollars on programs that line the pockets of consultants who are all in bed with the Democrats. They are doing a great job! Keep it up!

Even Jersey hoodrats know there will be no consequences if you assault someone in the People’s Socialist Republic of New York.

Let me guess…either a Mini-Bike a$$hole, or has a car that he has altered to intentionally backfire as obnoxiously as possible.

Shame, because of liberal leadership, video game enthusiasts are allowed and even encouraged to act like this. Never happened under gop leadership ever. We’re all doomed!!
