Police are searching for a bruiser they claimed slashed a man after getting into an argument with him on the M train on Oct. 23.
The brute and the 50-year-old victim began to shove each other after boarding the Brooklyn-bound orange bullet in Manhattan at around 6:00 pm, authorities said.

The man suffered a minor cut and paramedics treated him at the scene.
Authorities described the suspect as approximately 40-years-old, 5-foot-6, and 150 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes.
