The police released a photo Saturday of a man who allegedly punched a 42-year-old Hispanic woman in the face—in an apparent bias attack–on a Manhattan-bound 7 train last month.

The suspect allegedly approached the woman on the 7 train at around 3:40 p.m. on Saturday July 2 as it approached the Court Square–23rd Street station.

Without provocation, the man allegedly made anti-Hispanic remarks and then proceeded to punch the woman in the face.

The suspect exited the train at the Hunters Point train station, according to police. The woman sustained minor injuries.

The incident is being investigated by the NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force.

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).
