A-Train Ripper: Serial killer loose on subway, say cops

A thief pummeled a 12-year-old boy before swiping his bike in a Queens subway station, cops said. 

The victim was on the mezzanine level of the 67th Avenue M and R station around 5:20 p.m. Thursday when a stranger punched him all over his body and threw him off the bike, according to cops and police sources. 

The suspect fled with the bike on a Manhattan-bound train, cops said. 

The victim refused medical attention.

Surveillance video released late Sunday shows the suspect walking with the bike. 

The incident comes amid a recent surge of violence in the city’s subway system.
