Two MTA conductors attacked, one robbed in NYC: cops

Two MTA conductors were attacked in separate incidents on the tracks this month – one of them robbed, police officers said on Wednesday.

Four suspects — apparently teenagers — approached a 40-year-old male MTA conductor as he pulled a northbound N train into Queens Plaza station around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, authorities said.

The operator opened the window of his car and began making announcements when one of the baby-faced suspects pushed and knocked him down, police officers said.

Then a second person snatched the conductor’s train keys, authorities said.

Video shows all four suspects with backpacks as they escape through an emergency door.

One of the teenagers has curly hair and was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and a black backpack.

The fourth suspect also has curly hair and was last seen in a white T-shirt, light-colored trousers, a black backpack and white sneakers.

More than a week earlier, at around 2:10 a.m. on May 8, an assailant approached a 43-year-old male conductor on Platform D of the 205th Street-Norwood subway station in the Bronx, police officers said.

He then pushed the transit worker to the ground – for no reason and without saying a word, authorities said.

The victim was taken to Montefiore Hospital in stable condition and with significant back pain.

Police released video of the suspect fleeing the station through the turnstile.
