A stranger repeatedly slapped an 80-year-old woman in an unprovoked attack on a train as it pulled into an Upper East Side station, cops said Tuesday.
The senior was on a southbound No. 6 train at the 68th Street-Hunter College station around 4:30 p.m. Saturday when the suspect hit her multiple times on her head, back and shoulder without saying a word, authorities said.
The attack caused the octogenarian to fall to the ground, cops said.
The suspect got off the train at the next stop, Lexington Avenue-59th Street, authorities said.
Video footage, which cops say was taken after the incident, shows the alleged assailant leaving a large brown paper bag in front of one turnstile before jumping another. The contents of the bag are not known.
Police say he is between 40 and 45 years old, about 6-foot-2 and 170 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a black shirt, black and red leather jacket, baggy jeans and red and black sneakers.
