A 40-year-old man was sent to the hospital on Sunday, June 28, after being attacked both in and outside of a subway station in Gravesend, police say.

The assault began inside the 86th Street subway station on the N line, according to police, where the victim was punched in the face by a young black man thought to be around 20 years old. The attack resumed on West 8th Street and 86th Street, where the suspect allegedly struck the victim with what police say was a “bread crate.”

Police say the victim was taken to the Coney Island Hospital, where he received three stitches on his face, and was otherwise in stable condition.

Police described the suspect as being about 6 feet 2 inches tall, around 150 pounds, with brown eyes, black hair, and last seen wearing gray sneakers.
