Police have released footage of a man wanted for punching an MTA employee in the face and chasing him with a golf club inside Queens Plaza subway station Tuesday.

On April 7, at around 2:03 p.m. the suspect approached an on-duty MTA worker in the mezzanine area of the station in order to ask him a question, police said.

Police said that once the suspect got close enough, he suddenly punched the victim in the face.

The transit worker then ran for safety but was chased by the suspect, according to police.

Surveillance footage released by the NYPD shows the suspect running down a hallway with a golf club in his hand.

The victim was able to evade a further attack.

The suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction with two other men, police said.

The MTA worker was transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital with minor injuries, the NYPD said.

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