Officials are searching for two teens they say allegedly punched a subway conductor in the head.



Investigators say the 16-year-old suspects punched the 49-year-old woman in the back of the head on Feb. 25 while she was doing a safety check on a southbound L train.



Authorities say one suspect hit her as the train was pulling into the station. The second suspect hit her when the train stopped.



The victim was treated for a minor injury at an area hospital and released.
