    The NYPD is looking for a well-dressed man caught on camera pummeling a stranger on a subway platform in Times Square last week.

    The man punches the straphanger several times -- even getting passed by fellow commuters who do not stop to help -- until the victim is crumpled on the ground. The man then walks off. 

    According to authorities, the suspect asked his victim why he was staring at him on the train before the attack.

    The 22-year-old suffered two chipped teeth and swelling due to his injuries. 

    The attacker is still at large. Anyone with information about the assailant's identity is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
