A 47-year-old woman was punched in the head while waiting for a train at a Long Island City subway station Tuesday.

The victim was waiting for an E train inside the Queens Plaza subway station just before 6 p.m. when an unidentified man approached her and slugged her several times in the head without provocation, according to police.

The perpetrator then fled the scene on foot. He did not say anything to the woman during the assault, police said.

The victim, who suffered a broken nose and multiple bruises to her face, was transported by EMS in stable condition to New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital.

Police released video footage of the suspect taken from inside the Queens Plaza subway station.
