Wanted: Police are looking for this guy, who punched a woman leaving a Clinton Hill deli on Wednesday, video footage shows.

Cops are hunting for the jerk who socked a teenage girl in the face as she walked out of a Clinton Hill deli on Wednesday.

Video footage shows the guy strolling down the street towards the bodega at 541 Myrtle Ave. before hurling a punch at the 19-year-old victim as she exited the store at 2:45 pm.

The teen fell to the ground following the blow, which bruised her face, according to authorities, and the brute kept on walking, barely breaking his stride, the video shows.

Authorities said the suspect is around 20-years-old, and was wearing gray hoodie and sweatpants at the time of the attack.
