Another subway attack: New York police are looking for a violent man who pushed passengers onto the platform for no apparent reason

City and state authorities are searching for a man who did it captured on video Pushing a waiting passenger onto the subway tracks in New York City Friday afternoon in what appeared to be a completely unprovoked attack. The victim was fortunately able to leave the track area without being killed by a train, but suffered a broken collarbone and other injuries in the accident.

This has been a particularly violent week in the New York City subway system, as authorities say there have been over a dozen violent incidents on New York City subways in the past week alone. Following this latest incident, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) and Mayor Eric Adams (D) held a joint press conference Saturday to announce the creation of a new joint crime-fighting plan on city-state subways.

In the video, the suspect, whose features are largely obscured by his hoodie, baseball cap and mask, can be seen calmly dropping a backpack before charging at what appears to be a random passenger, hurling him onto the unoccupied tracks below.

While the suspect’s face is mostly obscured during the attack, video footage captured by security cameras during his escape managed to get a clearer picture of the suspect’s appearance.

The victim, 32-year-old David Martin, told WCBS-TV that he was very scared after the incident.

“I’m from New York City and the trauma I’m having … is pretty intense right now,” Martin said. Martin also described how he escaped the tracks. “As soon as I landed, I opened my eyes and looked into the tunnel. People were really nice trying to pull me up but I was in too much pain so I went to the end of the station and went up a small ladder.”

As part of the initiative proposed by Hochul and Adams, additional officers and cameras will be deployed on the subway in response to the recent spike in subway violence. “Violent assaults, muggings, a 15-year-old boy who died of violence just a week ago. Nine murders in our subway so far this year,” Hochul lamented.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s identity is asked to contact NYPD Crime Stoppers at 1-800-557-TIPS. Another subway attack: New York police are looking for a violent man who pushed passengers onto the platform for no apparent reason
