QUEENS — The man who fatally punched a 64-year-old man for bumping his wife on a bus in Queens turned himself in Monday, police said.

Mathew Smith, 42, who hit Patrick Gorman, 64, on the corner of Main Street and Queens Boulevard in Briarwood on June 26, walked into the 75th Precinct in Brooklyn, where he was arrested around 3 p.m., police said.

He was charged with criminally negligent homicide and assault with intent to cause physical injury, police said.

Police released surveillance video last week after the city medical examiner's office deemed Gorman's death a homicide on Oct. 29, officials said.

The footage showed Smith punching Gorman in the head.

The victim, who lived in an apartment building steps away from where the incident took place, was seen struggling to get up, as Smith and his wife, Elena Makarova, 39, calmly walked away.

Prior to the incident, the couple was on the bus with Gorman when he bumped into Smith's wife, police said.

Smith bragged about the incident on Facebook only hours after it happened.

“I had to put my hands on somebody last night smdh,” Smith posted the same day on his Facebook page, which appeared to have been deleted last Friday.

“I don't feel bad for protecting mine at all, I'd do it again. I feel bad for how he got folded up. Hahaha it was ugly lol," he posted.

Detectives are still looking for his wife, the NYPD said Monday.

“I love you hunny,” Makarova posted on her Facebook page Sunday. “Hold ur head!"

In her post, she also mentioned the June incident and its media coverage.

"It's so ignorant of people to jut [sic] read the papers and take it as if God talking!!!” she wrote.

“Nobody shows the footage where this man pushed me, curse me out, called matt 
n/$$@...I'm not feeding into this s--t. All I can say is get ur facts straight!”

Smith had not been arraigned as of Monday afternoon, according to the Queens District Attorney's office, and it was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.
