    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. 

    Police are still looking for the suspect, now identified as 24-year-old Jose Hasing. According to authorities, Hasing 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. 

    Hasing is described as being about 6 feet tall and 240 pounds. Anyone with information on Hasing's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
