The police hope the public can help them find a woman who is accused of assaulting a senior citizen on a 6 train on Wednesday—apparently the suspect first tried to kiss the 68-year-old woman and then attacked her when the other woman refused the kiss.

According to the NYPD, at around 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10, the 68-year-old woman got onto the 6 train at the East 59th Street station. The suspect sat down next to her, and, the police say, "put a hand on the victim and kissed her on the forehead. When the victim rebuffed the suspect's advances, the suspect became aggressive and grabbed the victim's hair, and punched her on the head and face."

The suspect then fled at the East 68th Street stop. The victim suffered a bruise on her head.

Police describe the suspect as a black female in her mid-40s, about 5'11", 150 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes. The police also released a photo of her (right).
