NYC subway violence: Police reportedly nab suspects who attacked at least 4 people in 12-minute crime spree
Big Apple officials are fed up with Mayor Bill de Blasio’s negligence, they say
By Fox News, May 15, 2021
A group of men who are believed to have attacked at least four different people – slashing three of them – during a 12-minute violence spree on Friday morning in the Big Apple’s subway, as officials tell Fox News: “Enough is enough.”
The terrifying string of attacks highlights what city transportation officials are calling a need for more uniformed police officers in the subway system, despite how Mayor de Blasio has pushed the idea that the prevalence of crime will decrease with the increased presence of riders as coronavirus pandemic restrictions begin to lift.
The suspects were taken into custody on Friday afternoon, though their identities were not yet released, according to authorities. New York City police nabbed four people in connection with the attack, spotting and arresting them in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Officials said one of the suspects had been arrested for a similar crime in January and was released without bond at the time.
The first of Friday’s incidents was reported around 4:25 a.m., when a 44-year-old man riding a southbound No. 4 train was approached by two men, one of whom slashed him in the face, police said. The victim got off the subway at Manhattan’s Union Square Station.
Enough is enough. The mayor is risking New York’s recovery every time he lets these incidents go by without meaningful action
But his attackers are believed to have stayed on board and carried out their next attack only minutes later, at approximately 4:34 a.m., when the two suspects allegedly approached a 40-year-old man and also slashed him in his face, police said. They then moved on to a second man – the third victim of the morning – whom they purportedly punched in the face, police said.
Both men exited the train in the area of Astor Place, according to police – an area known to be busy and full of college students.
The suspects then allegedly moved on to another 44-year-old man, who, around 4:37 a.m., was slashed in the back of the head, cops said. The victim described his attackers as two to three men.
The suspects then demanded money from the man before taking his phone and throwing it on the train tracks, police said. He got off the train at the Brooklyn Bridge Station.
