Manhattan detectives need the public’s help to find the suspect who knocked a woman down a flight of stairs while robbing her at the 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal subway station in Midtown earlier this month.
The NYPD released video footage of the culprit responsible for the caper, which occurred at 6:49 a.m. on April 5, on Saturday.
According to police sources, the suspect approached the victim, a 67-year-old woman, as she began to descend a stairwell into the mezzanine of the station from street level.
Cops said the thief punched her in the head, then grabbed her purse as she fell down the stairwell.
The suspect fled with the purse — which contained a cellphone and wallet with $150 in cash and several credit cards — in an unknown direction, police noted.
The incident was reported to Midtown South District and NYPD Transit District 1. EMS treated the victim at the scene for minor injuries.
As seen in the video, the suspect was wearing a gray hoodie, blue jeans and black sneakers.
