Man Punches Subway Rider in the Face After Victim Steps on His Bag: NYPD

Suspect (NYPD)

July 9, 2019 By Shane O’Brien

The police are looking for a man who punched a subway rider in the face on a Manhattan-bound E train last month after the victim accidentally stood on his bag.

The suspect allegedly punched the 39-year-old victim in the face at around 6:05 a.m. on June 27 as the train was approaching Queens Plaza. The attacker was angered after the victim stepped on his bag.

The victim’s glasses were broken as a result of the punch, causing a laceration below his right eye. The victim left the train at the Queens Plaza station, while the suspect remained onboard.

The suspect is described as being black and about 5 feet 7 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a dark colored baseball cap, a yellow shirt and blue pants.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.

This was the stupidest thing he could do.

You can look up his shirt easily (whatafool). Triborough scaffolding and hoisting.

There is no way he should be able get away with this.

If diversity hurts your feelings you're in the wrong city

Why are racist Trump lovers so fragile?

They would rather be ripped off, marginalized, abused, assaulted, dismissed and laughed at by their own kind.

Wow, thanks. Everyone was really wondering why you weren’t taking the train so much these days. Please post more worthless comments that don’t add anything to the conversation and have nothing to do with the matter at hand. FOH

I had a similar experience with a similar looking individual who went berserk after I accidentally bumped his shoe in a jam packed train station. Thankfully it did not turn physical, but seriously…what kind of culture is this that people can become so enraged over the normalities of everyday urban living?
