A mugger punched a Harlem straphanger and pushed him down the stairs before stealing his wallet, cops said.
The 50-year-old male victim was waiting on the northbound C platform at the 145th Street station around 4:30 p.m. on April 14 when the suspect approached him and demanded, “Give me money,” authorities said.
The victim refused and walked away – prompting the suspect to follow him, according to police.
The thug then slapped the victim in the face, hit him in the head with a glass bottle and pushed him down a flight of stairs before snatching his wallet from him, police officers said.
The victim refused medical treatment, police said.
The suspect – shown in surveillance footage released late Tuesday – fled the station and is still on the run.
