The incident actually occurred in April, though the NYPD just released details on Monday.

According to police, a 53-year-old woman was attempting to board a southbound E train at the Forest Hills/71 Avenue station when she bumped into a woman exiting the train. 

The exiting woman - who was both pushing a stroller and wearing an infant in a strap-on carrier - then allegedly got back on the train, punched the victim in the face and then fled. 

The 53-year-old was treated for pain and bruising to her left eye. 

The alleged attacker was described as a light-skinned woman around 30 years old.
