Police are looking for the bigot who snatched a man’s cell phone while shouting anti-Semitic slurs at the Gates Avenue subway station in Bushwick on June 13.

The scum unloaded on the victim with a litany of obscene remarks at the station near Broadway at 8 a.m., screaming “Heil Hitler,” “F——— the Jews,” “All the Jews can die,” and “Come back and kill all you Jews — how about that?”

Meanwhile, the victim filmed the lowlife’s bigoted tirade on his phone, but — after deciding to walk away from his assailant — the bigot snuck up from behind, snatched the phone from his pocket and threw it at an oncoming train before fleeing the station, cops said.

The man was able to get his phone back undamaged and was not injured, according to police.

The authorities describe the attacker as a man in his 30s who is approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall and 170 pounds, with hazel eyes, a slim build, black hair, and a goatee.

He was wearing a full black suit with white shirt, black tie, and black dress shoes at the time, according to police.

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident as an attempted grand larceny, a felony, but cops are likely to bump up the charges as a hate crime when they send it to District Attorney Eric Gonzalez’s office, according to department spokeswoman Detective Denise Moroney.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect up to a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone their tips to (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
