Crazy Man Attacks MTA Worker In Harlem

Early Saturday morning, a crazy man attacked a MTA worker on the Manhattan-bound platform at the 145th Street train station. The unidentified Hispanic male was standing on the Bronx-bound platform when he began to shout at workers on the closed Manhattan-bound platform. He proceeded to exit the station & cross the street to enter on the Manhattan-bound side where he went over the turnstile & punched one of the workers.

Here is the brief video caught on tape:

Sadly these incidents continue to be an issue for transit workers whether above or underground & many do not make it to the media. More needs to be done to protect these workers as even the increase in penalties for assaulting workers has not deterred these crimes. Hopefully a solution can be found as soon as possible as enough is enough!
