Cops are searching for a guy who they say yanked a chain from a woman’s neck aboard an F Train on Aug. 4.

When the Coney Island-bound train reached the Fort Hamilton Parkway station at 1:25 pm, the fellow grabbed his 26-year-old victim’s head and snatched her necklace, then fled the station, police said.

The suspect stands 5-feet-9, weighs about 180 pounds, and was last seen wearing a blue shirt, khaki pants, and black sneakers, according to the authorities.

Police ask those with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477, go to www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text-message tips to 274637 and enter “TIP577.”
