Homeless Man Arrested For MTA Attack

Two days ago I wrote about an unprovoked attack on a MTA worker at the 145th Street line station. The attack which occurred last weekend started with a man on the Bronx-bound platform shouting at workers who were on the Manhattan-bound platform. The man proceeded to exit the station, cross the street & reenter on the downtown side and hopped the turnstile before punching the worker in the face.

Thankfully I can report that the man who was identified as Mike Ortiz, a homeless ex-convict has been arrested by the NYPD due to a tip they received. He is schedule to be arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court.
