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.

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.
