Police are searching for a woman who  punched and shoved another passenger off the 7 train at the 74th Street/Broadway station during rush hour earlier this month.

Police say that the assault took place while the train was at the station at around 8:25 a.m. on Oct. 2.

The suspect shoved the victim, a 30-year-old woman, off the train and onto the platform. When the victim turned around, the woman punched her in the face. 

The pair fought each other until passengers separated them, police say. The suspect then hurried out of the station in an unknown direction.

Police say that the suspect is a Hispanic woman who is between 25 and 30 years old. She is about 5 feet 5 inches tall and has shoulder-length black hair. When she was last seen, she was wearing a white hoodie, black pants and black sneakers and was carrying a black backpack.

Anyone with information in regards 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).
