An MTA worker was assaulted last week in a Bronx subway station.

According to the NYPD, at 2:30 a.m. on December 23, a 28-year-old female MTA employee, who was on duty and in her full uniform, was "approached by a male on the southbound platform of the D Train at the East Tremont Train Station. The male grabbed the MTA employee in a bear hug from behind and pushed her to the platform floor, and then began to choke her."

The suspect fled and the victim was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries to her head, neck and back.

The police released this video of the suspect, who is described as being about 5'10" and 190 pounds, with a medium complexion, short, brown hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a black jacket, brown pants and black sneakers.
