MTA Worker Assaulted In Harlem

Subway crime is up in a major way throughout the entire subway system. Sadly MTA workers are not spared from the violence. Such was the case early Sunday morning at the 148th St-Harlem station when a MTA worker was punched in the face after telling someone to get off the train. Sam Raskin of the New York Post has more:

A man punched an MTA worker at a Harlem subway station after a verbal dispute early Sunday morning, police said.

The maintenance worker told a rider to get off the train and was socked in the face by the assailant about 1:10 a.m. at the 148th Street No. 3 subway station, according to police. The employee, a 40-year-old man, was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries, cops said.

The attacker, who did not have a weapon, wore a black mask and grey pants, and fled from the Lenox Terminal station in an unknown direction, according to police.

I hope the lowlife responsible is caught although I sadly believe he won’t. I wish complete safety for all the MTA workers out there!
