Travis Scott is wanted for questioning by police after a man claimed he was punched in the face at a Manhattan nightclub early Wednesday.

A sound engineer who works at Club Nebula in Midtown told the authorities that he was in a verbal dispute with another man that escalated into a physical altercation around 2 a.m., police said.

The 52-year-old victim alleged that the suspect punched him in the face, and did $12,000 worth of damage to an audio speaker and a video screen, police said.

Although police have not identified the suspect, the victim claims it was Scott. 

The victim didn’t suffer visible injuries and refused medical attention, police said. The suspect fled the scene in a car.
