Police are searching for a man who attacked a 41-year-old on a Williamsburg street and stole his bag last month.

Police say the attacker punched the victim several times to the face, knocking him down outside of 209 Berry Street. The incident happened at around 7:30 a.m. on Feb. 24, police announced yesterday.

The attacker eventually yanked the victim’s tote bag from him, and fled westward on foot, police say.

The victim refused medical attention, according to police.

The suspect is described as black, approximately 30 years old, and weighing 190 pounds. He is approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall, and was last seen wearing all black clothing.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

All calls are strictly confidential.
