Police are looking for a man who they say hit an elderly woman on a bus in Jamaica.

Police said a 75-year-old woman was exiting the Q36 bus at the northwest corner of Hillside Avenue and Edgerton Boulevard on May 15 at around 1:30 p.m. when a stranger punched her in the head.

The 75-year-old suffered considerable pain as a result of the seemingly unprovoked attack, police said. EMS responded to the scene and transported her to a nearby hospital where she was treated and eventually released, authorities said.

Police released two surveillance videos of the man who allegedly assaulted the woman, one taken at a Hillside Avenue business.

The alleged individual was last seen wearing a bright orange du-rag, a black hoodie, multi-colored pants with orange and black sneakers and carrying an orange and gray backpack.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of suspects is asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their advice by logging into the CrimeStoppers website at nypdcrimestoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
