Police released a sketch of a brute they say broke a 65-year-old man’s hip and wrist during a 92nd Street altercation on Nov. 13.

The attacker and his victim, who are apparently strangers, got into an argument near Fort Hamilton Parkway in Bay Ridge around 9 am, but it is unclear what they were arguing about, police said.

The aggressor pushed the elderly victim to the ground, which broke the oldster’s hip and wrist, officials said. He fled the scene shortly after in a Ford F-150 pickup truck, according to cops. The victim went to Staten Island University North Hospital, police said.

The suspect is between 40 and 50 years old and has brown, wavy hair, according to law enforcement sources.

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