The New York City Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the man who attacked an elderly woman on a subway car in the Bronx in the early hours of March 10. Video of the attack surfaced on Thursday that not only showed the woman being repeatedly kicked in the head and body but also showed that no one came to her aid, instead other riders pulled out their smartphones and filmed the attack.
The perp acknowledged the smartphones recording him by saying, “WorldStar that, my nigger!” as he got off the train.
NYPD posted an appeal for help on Twitter, “WANTED for ASSAULT: help us bring justice to a 78-year-old woman who was brutally kicked in the face on 3/10 at 3:10 am inside the 238th St/Nereid Ave subway station in the Bronx. If you have any info, call
@NYPDTips at 800-577-TIPS. Your calls are anonymous!”
WABC-TV reported the victim was bleeding from the attack:
Authorities say the man in the video kicked the 78-year-old victim in the face and body, causing her to bleed.
The suspect then got off the train at Nereid Avenue, while the victim stayed on the train for one more stop.
She received medical attention when the train pulled into the 241st Street station in the Wakefield section.
