A man punched a 56-year-old woman multiple times in the head and stole her phone following an argument on the 7 train earlier this month.

The unidentified man got into a dispute with the woman onboard a Flushing-bound 7 train at Queensboro Plaza on May 4 and then became violent, police said. The incident took place at 12:45 p.m.

The man punched the woman in the head multiple times and then forcibly grabbed her cellphone, police said. He fled to parts unknown with the phone.

The woman sustained minor injuries, but refused medical attention at the scene, police said.

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). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.
