Violence runs wild on the NYC subway.
According to a report from The New York Post, a teen girl was caught on camera attacking an Asian woman —and a witness filming the event —on the F Train in New York City.
The event is being investigated as a possible hate crime.
From The New York Post:
The apparent aggressor also allegedly punched a straphanger, Joanna Lin, who pulled out her phone to record the tumultuous scene, according to the footage Lin later posted to Instagram.
“I’m in shock & still at a loss for words except for what I documented on the reel,” Lin captioned the video. “I’ll be ok, just a bit sore on the head and tailbone.”
The other woman, Sue Young, told CBS New York that the violence started when the three teenagers began laughing and pointing at her, her husband and their 11-year-old twin daughters.
“It was just insult, after insult, after insult. And, finally, my husband felt like he needed to step in and so he was like, ‘Can you use some better words besides those?’” Young told the station.
That only enraged the teens and they began threatening the mom and shouting at the family who were visiting from Nevada, according to the video.
“We want zero felonies a day, but are we trending in the right direction? You’re darn right we are,” NYC Mayor Eric Adams said during a January press briefing to tout a safer subway system.
Good luck getting to zero, Mayor Adams.
