Police are searching for a man who punched a 69-year-old woman in an apparent road-rage attack in Astoria earlier this month.
The man was sitting in his car outside 33-51 9th Street on Oct. 1 at around 4:50 p.m. when he got into a argument with the woman after she exited a separate vehicle.
The dispute escalated and the suspect got out of his car and threw an object at the woman, according to video footage released by police.
Police said the man then punched and pushed the woman causing her to fall to the ground.
He then got back into his car and fled the scene westbound along 34th Avenue, cops said.
The woman suffered pain and bruising but refused medical attention from responding EMS, police said.
The suspect is described as male and aged between 20 and 30 years of age.
Police released surveillance footage taken during the incident.
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.

Why only show this small clip? Show the entire video.

Vote democrat and keep cursing at the police. Let’s see who is gonna protect you.
His plate should be clear on the camera, you can almost see it on this report. He’s a real tough guy, taking on a 69 year-old lady.
Is that a yellow Jersey plate?
She’s lucky to be alive. Could have been shot.
I used to live in Astoria and left and moved to Texas,here in Texas he may be lucky to be alive.
Good for you man. Wish I could do the same. Just don’t vote for Democrats or else the cancer will spread there. Already Austin is lost.
Tough lady having to defend herself against that lowlife. With progressive policies in place, dirtbags can assault people in broad daylight and get away scot free
to continue the confrontation.
you see someone being weird like that, give them what they want.
Were you there? What was she supposed to do? Wait for the neighborhood association to rescue her??You would have run. Nerd
You are wrong. No one has to endure bullying. Everybody should be able to protect himself/herself with means whatever necessary.
