NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police late Tuesday were asking the public to help them find a suspect who attacked a 65-year-old man at a Bronx subway station last week.

Around 5:15 a.m. Monday, July 14, the suspect walked up to the 65-year-old man in the mezzanine area of the 205th Street and Bainbridge D Train station and demanded money, police said.

The suspect then ran off, police said,

The suspect was described as a black male around 25 years old, standing about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with black hair. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans, police said.

Police have released a surveillance photo of the suspect.
