NYPD is searching for man who threw rock at cop on UWS

A man who chucked a rock at an NYPD officer on the Upper West Side — sending him to the hospital — is still on the loose nearly four months later, police said.

The uniformed officer, 33, was on duty and riding a department scooter at Columbus Avenue and West 67th Street, near Lincoln Center, around 8 p.m. June 2 when the alleged rock-slinger struck, according to cops.

The NYPD released surveillance photos of the suspect, showing him poised to throw the rock, late Sunday.

He ran away after the attack, cops said. A large crowd was in the area at the time, according to police.

The officer, who suffered pain and swelling to the right side of his face, was taken to Mount Sinai Morningside hospital in stable condition.
