The NYPD is looking for a tough guy who allegedly sucker punched a senior woman that was waiting for a bus in the south Bronx over the weekend.

The 65-year-old woman was seated at a bus stop in front of 1737 Boston Rd. at about 10.m. on Saturday, when the man approached and swung at the innocent victim in the seemingly random attack.

Although she refused medical attention, police reported that the woman suffered pain and redness to her left eye as result of the assault.

Police released this footage of the suspect, who fled on foot to parts unknown.

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).
