CONCOURSE, The Bronx — Police are searching for a subway rider who attacked a gay man, screaming homophobic epithets at the victim then pushing him down the stairs at a Bronx subway station.

The attack happened about 11:30 p.m. June 4 at the 183rd St-Grand Concourse station in the Bronx, a police source told PIX11 News Wednesday.

The victim was on a D train with another man when the attacker said to him, “f—ing f—–s.”

Both men exited the train at the 183rd Street-Grand Concourse stop. A law enforcement source said the attacker waited for the victim upstairs then, when he spotted him, pushed the victim down the stairs and kicked and punched him as he lay on the ground.

During the beating, he allegedly told the victim, “You f—ing f—–s make me sick.”

The victim, a 48-year-old man, was treated for a broken nose, a cut above his eyes and numerous bruises, sources said.

No arrests have been made.
