MOTT HAVEN -

Police are still on the hunt for the man they say assaulted two MTA workers, throwing a cup of urine to their faces.

Police say the first incident happened on April 12 around 10:30 a.m. inside of the Brook Avenue 6 subway station. They say the suspect punched the 43-year-old on-duty female MTA conductor in the face, before splashing her with urine he had in a container.

Officials say the individual fled the station to the street.

The second incident happened about an hour later in front of 250 Grand Concourse. They say the suspect threw urine on 43-year-old MTA bus operator Trellis Robinson on a northbound Bx2 bus, through the side window.

Robinson told News 12 the attack happened while she was boarding passengers near East 138th Street.

Officials say the suspect fled on foot northbound on Grand Concourse.

Police say both victims were treated at the hospital.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s, around 5 feet 7 inches and 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a burgundy hooded sweater, a dark-colored jacket, beige pants and red and black sneakers.

Bus drivers are advised to close their windows and subway operators are advised to wear goggles.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
