Cops are hunting the bully who broke a 25-year-old man’s jaw aboard a 4 train in Crown Heights on Tuesday.

The fiend told the hapless straphanger “I’m bigger than you and I can beat you up” within the New Lots Avenue-bound train at the Utica Avenue station at 1 a.m. on May 7, before cracking him twice in the face and then fleeing, cops said.

Paramedics rushed the victim to Kings County Hospital following the assault, where he was treated for a broken jaw and discharged, according to police.

Investigators released surveillance images of the victim’s suspected attacker, who they described as 30 to 35 years old, 6 feet 1 inch tall, and approximately 200 pounds.

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