The New York City Police Department is asking for help identifying a man accused of attacking a worker at a downtown subway station.

Authorities told Fox News Digital in an emailed statement that on Friday, Nov. 4, at approximately 6:45 a.m. ET at the Chambers Street subway station, a 46-year-old female custodial cleaner was working on an “E” train island subway platform when an unknown individual wielding a metal pipe approached her.

The NYPD said it was reported that, unprovoked, the individual struck the woman in the face with the pipe.

The suspect was pursued on foot by other employees of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and was last seen fleeing on a southbound “2” train.
