A New York City police detective is in a medically induced coma, after being punched in the head on a subway platform in Manhattan over the weekend.

The 29 year old officer was off-duty when he got into an argument with another man on a 6 train platform at 23rd Street and Park Avenue around 6:30.  The suspect punched the detective, causing him to hit his head on the ground.

“He has bleeding on the brain,” a police source told the Daily News.

The unidentified officer is now in a coma at Bellevue Hospital.

Police have released a sketch of the suspect and are asking for the public’s help in identifying him.
