Five punks harassed an old man on a Q train in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens last month — then punched another guy who tried to intervene, police say.
One of the five fiends slugged the 56-year-old good Samaritan in the face after he tried to stop the group tormenting a senior citizen onboard a Ditmas Park-bound train at around 10:40 pm on Dec. 10, authorities said.
The quintet fled the train at Prospect Park station, and the victim went to Kings County Hospital to get his aching head seen to, cops said.
Police have released surveillance footage of five suspects entering the Seventh Avenue station in Park Slope.
