Bronx Woman Attacked On Subway After Asking Man To Stop Poking Her

After investigating for over a month, police are asking for the public’s help with searching for a man who attacked a 40-year-old woman on a Brooklyn train, Audacy reported.

On January 29th, just before midnight, the victim was standing while on a southbound N train, as it approached the 86th Street subway. Next to her was the suspect, who began poking her on her shoulder. When she politely asked him to stop, the woman was attacked.

The man reportedly began punching the victim in the face multiple times, causing her to fall to the ground. When the subway train came to a stop, he immediately exited the station and fled on foot. The woman, who had numerous cuts and bruising on her face, was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for injuries.

Though a photo was captured of the assailant, the NYPD has failed to obtain any leads or suspects. They are now asking for those who recognize the man to come forward and call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline for an up to $3,500 reward.
