Police have released video footage of a man who punched a straphanger in the face at a Jackson Heights subway station last month.

On April 20, at around 10:05 a.m., the suspect got into a heated argument with a 53-year-old man on the Manhattan-bound 7 Train platform at the 74th St. Broadway station, police said.

The suspect then punched the 53-year-old in the face and in doing so knocked the victim’s cellphone from his hand, according to police.

The alleged perpetrator then fled the scene in an unknown location.

The victim suffered pain and bruising to his mouth. He refused medical attention at the scene, police said.

Police said that the victim subsequently recovered his cellphone.

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).

A College Point man who works as an inspector at the city’s Department of Buildings is accused of accepting bribes in exchange for overlooking potential violations at various Queens locations on multiple occasions since January 2023.

Zabihullah Ibrahimi, 42, of 22nd Avenue, was arraigned Thursday in Queens Criminal Court on bribery and official misconduct charges for taking cash from homeowners and then closing complaints about their property. In one case, he allegedly asked for $3,500 from a property owner and, when she said she had no cash, he directed her to go to a bank and get it while he waited at her home, according to Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz.
