Police are looking for this man who allegedly threatened and made anti-Muslim statements toward a teen on a Queens bus on April 7.

A 15-year-old girl was harassed while riding a Queens bus last week when a man made anti-Muslim remarks toward her, spat at the teen and threatened her, police said.

The incident occurred aboard a Q88 bus near the Horace Harding Expressway and Kissena Boulevard about 9 a.m. on April 7, officials said.

After the suspect spat at the girl, he allegedly raised his fist at her while saying he was going to punch her.
