A man captured on surveillance video is wanted for assaulting a SEPTA employee on a Center City subway platform Monday morning, SEPTA said.
SEPTA said it is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.
A SEPTA maintenance custodian was working on the southbound platform of the Walnut-Locust station along the Broad Street Line Monday, the agency said.
Shortly before 6 a.m., she told transit police that she was punched by a man after she swept underneath the bench he was lying on, SEPTA said. The man hit her in the face, causing her to fall and hit a pillar.
The female worker was taken to Jefferson University Hospital, SEPTA said. Her condition was not immediately known.
The suspect ran on Walnut Street towards 15th Street after the attack.
