The police are looking for a man who smashed two security cameras inside a Long Island City subway station earlier this month.

The suspect, police said, was inside the 33rd Street-Rawson Street subway station on July 9 at around 3:35 p.m. when he began to urinate on the southbound 7 train platform.

He then damaged two MTA-owned security cameras worth around $800 before fleeing in an unknown direction, according to police.

Police on Wednesday released images of the man wanted for questioning. The suspect is descibed as having a dark-colored complexion and was last seen seen wearing blue-colored pants and a blue t-shirt with the words “get on board give blood’ emblazoned across its front.

The incident comes as police search for another man who is wanted for breaking nine security cameras at 7-train stations in Sunnyside over the past month. The assailant allegedly destroyed the cameras in three separate incidents with the total value of property damage in those incidents being at about $3,000.

Anyone with information in regard to these incidents 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 https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/.
