FOREST HILLS - Police were searching for a woman who allegedly tossed coffee on and punched a fellow straphanger in Forest Hills earlier this month, the NYPD said.

Authorities said the assault took place around 6 p.m. April 2 on an F train at the 71st Avenue-Continental Avenue station.

The suspect allegedly became angry after a woman bumped into her on the train, and then allegedly threw coffee in the straphanger’s face and punched her in the head, police said.

The 53-year-old victim received minor injuries during the attack, the NYPD said,

The suspect was described by authorities as a 5-foot-1 black who was wearing a black jacket.

Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.

Every New Yorker has bumped into one of these at some point or another. Ghetto mentality.

She was probably blocking the door, and got mad when someone had the nerve to use her "seat" to board the train.
