Police are searching for a teen they say hit a 64-year-old woman in the face on board an MTA bus in the Bronx earlier this month.
The suspect, described as a heavyset female in her late teens and about 5 feet 4 inches tall, hit the victim in the right side of her face on a Bx22 bus the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 3, police said. She then ran away.
It is not clear what prompted the assault near White Plains Road and Birchall Avenue.
The victim complained of pain but wasn’t hospitalized, police said.
