Man beats MTA cleaners in New York subway station, police say

A man punched an MTA cleaner in the face at a Queens subway station early Tuesday, authorities said.

The 64-year-old worker was standing near the stand at the Main Street station on Line 7 in Flushing at around 2:15 a.m. when a 38-year-old man approached and asked the time, police officers said.

When the cleaner turned to check, the suspect suddenly punched her in the face, police said.

She was treated at the scene and the attacker was taken into custody with charges pending, police said.

Earlier this month, two MTA conductors were assaulted and one was robbed in separate incidents in Queens and the Bronx.

The latest NYPD statistics, updated Sunday, show that the city’s subway system has seen an overall 57.5% increase in the seven major crime categories so far this year compared to 2021.

Crime attacks are up nearly 20%. from 205 to 245, according to the report.

So far this year, 15 people have been shot dead in six separate incidents on the rails – including the horrific April 12 shooting on an N train at the 36th Street stop in Sunset Park.

Ten people were shot dead and 19 others injured when Frank James allegedly detonated smoke bombs on a rush-hour train and began firing.

There have been four murders in the subway system since the beginning of the year.

The latest murder on the rails occurred Sunday when 48-year-old Daniel Enriquez was blasted in the chest without cause on an N train bound for Manhattan that was approaching Canal Street.
