BEACON TRANSCRIPT – The New York Police Department is currently searching for an African-American individual who allegedly punched a child in the face who was sitting quietly next to his mother. This is not the first incident on the New York subway, a similar one occurring just a few weeks before.
Attacker Appears to Taunt Child on New York Subway
According to an NYPD spokesperson, the incident occurred on the G train on Saturday, at around 4:30 p.m. The surveillance system reveals that the subway was just about to enter the Bergen Street station.
At one point, one of the passengers, described as a 6-foot-tall African-American male, turns around and punched a 5-year-old child in the face who was sitting next to his mother. According to the eyewitnesses, the boy did not approach the man, nor has he misbehaved during the trip.
More than that, the surveillance tape reveals that after hitting the boy in the face, the unknown individual appears to be taunting him, a fact confirmed by the eyewitnesses who have heard the individual saying: ‘Are you going to cry to your mommy?’
Following the New York subway incident, the 5-year-old boy was taken to the hospital to be treated for severe bruises and facial swelling. For the moment, the authorities have yet to identify the attacker.
Based on the description supplied by fellow commuters, the man was 6-feet-tall, around 160 pounds, with short, dark hair, and a mustache. At the time of the attack, the man was wearing a hooded shirt and dark-colored pants.
Regrettably, this is just one of many incidents that occur on the New York Subway. A couple of weeks ago, a surveillance system caught a smart-dressed man beating the living daylight out of a commuter for no apparent reason.
