Subway drivers are well aware of the bizarre scenes that take place underground, from violent assaults to robberies.
Earlier this year in May, a woman on the subway was attacked by other riders who ignored her plea for help.
The suspect, wearing black leggings and white sneakers, stormed around the train screaming outbursts. After the suspect took his seat, others rushed to leave the area.
When a female passenger closest to the gangster tries to flee, he grabs her and terrorizes the victim.
The video shows the bandit grabbing the woman’s hair as he pushes her into the chair.
The victim is visibly distraught and yells, “Help! Help out!’ while other horsemen ignore her pleas as the disturbing scene plays out.
Moments later, the vandal yells at the woman, “Get up!” before pushing her to another part of the subway and walking away.
