Cops are hunting a man wearing a “Punisher” T-shirt who chucked two rocks with profanities scrawled on them at the windows of ABC Studios on the Upper West Side during a newscast this week.
The suspect — seen in a Wanted photo wearing a black T-shirt with the iconic skull of the Marvel character The Punisher — hurled one rock at the front window and the other at a southeast side window of the studio on Columbus Avenue near West 66th Street just after noon Wednesday, cops said.
Both rocks were recovered on the scene — one with “F–k U ABC 7” written on it and the other with the message “Whore 666,” police sources said.
The vandal struck during the noon newscast, WABC reported.
The man took off, heading east on West 65th Street, according to the sources.
The Wanted photo was posted to the 20th Precinct Twitter account Wednesday evening and shared by WABC-TV anchor Bill Ritter Thursday morning.
Ritter reported that the same man was seen in a photo and suspected of attacking a WPIX reporter and photographer — as well as destroying equipment — two hours earlier. Cops could not confirm that account Thursday morning.
