An elderly man was beaten and robbed on a NYC train platform at random.

Police say a 70-year-old man was assaulted during a haphazard assault on a Midtown train platform on Tuesday morning.

Tuesday, just before 11 a.m., as the elderly victim exited the N train at West 32nd Street and Broadway, a stranger allegedly struck her in the face multiple times, police say.

According to police, the heartless maniac then emptied the injured man’s wallet of $200 before kicking his cellphone onto the train tracks. Paramedics transported him to a nearby hospital with minor injuries, according to the police.

Wednesday, in an effort to apprehend the assailant, the police issued a photograph of him.

A maniac was additionally apprehended on Tuesday for allegedly dousing an NYPD officer in an East Harlem subway station with rubbing alcohol before threatening to set the officer on fire.
