Police in New York City are looking for a man who attacked a stranger for apparently being white.

It happened on a bus Monday morning about 10 a.m. in Downtown Brooklyn.

The NYPD says a 29-year-old man was onboard a B25 MTA Bus on Fulton Street. Another man walked up to him and punched him in the face while making an anti-white comment. The victim was not seriously injured but suffered swelling and pain.

The attacker then got off of the bus at the intersection of Fulton Street and Bond Street.

Police released surveillance video showing the suspect after he got off of the bus. They say he is black, approximately 5 feet, 10 inches, approximately 180 to 200 pounds, and was wearing an earring in his left ear; sunglasses, a black baseball hat, a black sweatshirt, and black pants.
