Police are looking for the loutish lush who hit a 58-year-old in the face with a bag of beer bottles in Midwood on Aug. 7.

The victim, who works for a private sanitation company, was cleaning the street on the corner of Kings Highway and E. 14th Street around 12:50 am when he and the attacker got into an argument — though it is unclear over what, police said.

Things came to a head when the brute bashed him with a bag full of suds bottles — though it is unclear whether they were full or empty, police said.

The man suffered a busted lip, but he declined medical attention, officials said.

Cops believe the glass-swinging goon is between 40 and 50 years old, stands between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10, and weighs between 220 and 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt, pink shorts, and flip flops, officials said.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
