79-year-old man was accidentally beaten in an attack on a New York subway station: police officers
A stranger accidentally punched a 79-year-old man in the head in a Queens subway station over the weekend, video released early Wednesday shows.
The senior was at Corona’s Junction Boulevard station around 2:30 p.m. Saturday when the thug suddenly walked past him and hit him without provocation, according to police and video.
The victim, who was standing on the mezzanine floor of Line No. 7 — near the duty entrance door — fell backwards, hit a wall and fell to the ground, according to police and footage.
He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center in stable condition with a laceration to the back of his head, police officers said.
The attacker may have previously argued with a woman who was with him – and vented his anger on the innocent victim, police said.
The suspect, who fled after the incident, is described as being around 20 years old with dark skin and a slim build.
He was last spotted wearing a red baseball cap, a black hoodie with a white Puma logo on the front, blue jeans and a black backpack.
