NEW YORK (AP) - Police have released a sketch of a man they suspect broke a New Jersey man’s nose and fractured his eye socket in an apparent bias attack at a New York City subway station.

Police say Thursday they still haven’t identified the man who they say punched an unidentified 39-year-old man at the West Fourth Street station just after midnight March 2.

Police say the victim was standing with his partner when the attacker asked them if they were gay.

Police say the couple ignored the man, who went on to yell anti-gay slurs before punching the victim in the face. They say the suspect then fled the station.

Police say the victim was treated at Lenox Hill Hospital. The investigation has been designated as a hate crime.
