Police are searching for a man who shoved and punched a straphanger at the Queensboro Plaza station last week.

The NYPD says the attacker pushed a 21-year-old man aside while both were boarding an Astoria-Ditmars Blvd.-bound N train at around 7:30 p.m. on April 29.

The 21-year-old victim confronted him over the shove, but was punched in the face. The man then stepped outside the train and challenged the 21-year-old to a fight, police say.

The victim stayed inside the train while the assailant remained on the platform outside.

Police describe the suspect as black, in his 40s, measuring 6 feet tall, and donning a mustache. He was also seen wearing a red baseball cap, a red hooded sweater, a black vest, and dark colored jeans.

Anyone with information in regards 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). All calls are strictly confidential.

Sounds like a typical day at the Queensboro Plaza. Try getting off the 7 at rush hour. The doors will open and a hoard will be on you like the Walking Dead.

7:30PM? The trains and platforms are packed with people glued to their cell phones. Any video of this event?

Look for him at the local homeless shelter on 39th Street former best western or the City view shelter in Blissville.
