Stranger drags woman, 25, from New York subway bench in unprovoked attack: police officers

A stranger pulled a 25-year-old woman by the neck from a Brooklyn subway bank this week in an unprovoked attack — one of three random attacks announced by the NYPD overnight.

The woman was sitting on the bench on the southbound No. 2 platform at Grand Army Plaza station around 12:45 a.m. Sunday when five people approached her from behind, authorities said.

The crew surrounded the victim and one of them pulled her off the bench by the neck without warning, police officers said. She was treated on site by EMS.
