The suspect who allegedly sucker-punched, kicked and robbed a homeless man inside a Manhattan subway station this week was busted Wednesday morning, cops said.
Ronald Bailey, 42, was nabbed by cops around 10 a.m. and faces a robbery charge in connection to the mugging, police said.
The suspect was caught on surveillance video approaching the 50-year-old victim from behind around 3:20 p.m. Sunday as he stood in front of a manned ticket booth inside 34th Street-Penn Station — socking him in the face.
He then kicked the man while he was down before rifling through his pockets, the clip shows.
The assault happened near the northbound 2 and 3 line, cops said.
The bandit took off with the victim’s cellphone and wallet, holding $700, according to police.
The victim, who suffered cuts and bruising, was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated and released.

Bailey, who was charged with robbery, has about 30 prior arrests, cops said.
Cops on Tuesday described Bailey as homeless, but provided a Hell’s Kitchen address for him Wednesday.
