He then reportedly punched the victim in the face.

As the victim went to the station agent’s booth to report the crime, the suspect boarded a Pittsburg/Bay Point bound train.

The suspect is described as an African American man, 5’08” tall, 135 pounds, and wearing a black security uniform with a silver badge on the right side, police said.
