Cops Search for Man, Woman in NYC Subway Attacks: NYPD

A man accidentally hit two straphangers on Bronx trains last week – days before a female attacker tasered a man in a collision for a subway seat, authorities said.

A 38-year-old woman was exiting the 6 Brook Avenue train station in Mott Haven just after 10:00 a.m. on March 19 when a stranger suddenly approached and hit her on the head, police officers said.

The male attacker fled the station on foot towards Brown Place, authorities said.

The victim refused medical treatment for facial injuries.

A day later, authorities believe the same suspect targeted a 24-year-old woman traveling on the No. 6 train at around 12:25 p.m. near the Hunts Point Avenue station

The NYPD is also looking for a suspect who allegedly assaulted a 59-year-old man aboard an A train bound for Queens as it approached the Utica Avenue station in Crown Heights.

The two straphangers got into an argument over a seat that eventually became physical, cops said.

The woman flashed a taser and hit the man in the face with it before taking off, police said.

Police released photos of the suspect, who is still at large, wearing a brown winter coat over a black top, walking through the turnstile.

The victim was taken to SUNY Downstate Medical Center, where his condition was stable. Cops Search for Man, Woman in NYC Subway Attacks: NYPD
