THE BRONX - Police are looking for a new suspect in an assault on an officer that took place at the Parkchester subway station.

Cops say Travis Johnson and a female were being chased by an officer after jumping the turnstile at the station earlier this month.

When the officer caught up with the two, the policeman was punched in the face and went down to the ground.

Police now say that the unidentified female is the second suspect in the incident.

Earlier, it was thought that a woman named Dasia White was involved, but after questioning her, cops determined that White is no longer a suspect.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
