The video shows others on the train filming with their phones and yelling.
“This is an extremely disturbing video,” Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokeswoman Amanda Kwan said, according to the New York Post Friday.
The New York Police Department told The Daily Caller News Foundation over email that the incident occurred a little after 3 a.m. on Sunday, March 10.
“The individual is described as a male Black, approximately 40-years-old, 6’0″, 180 lbs., with a black goatee,” NYPD told TheDCNF. “He was last seen wearing a black jacket, black knit cap, long black and white checkered scarf, metal framed glasses, and black pants.”
Nobody immediately called the police, the Post reported.
“It’s terrible,” an MTA worker said, according to the Post. “I can’t believe something like that could happen.”
The woman was treated for swelling, cuts to the face and bleeding, according to NYPD.
This is not the first altercation that has occurred on or near a New York City subway. An MS-13 gang member was taken into custody in February after killing a man at a subway station.
The NYPD announced on Twitter on Saturday that the suspect wanted for the attack has been apprehended.
UPDATE: The subject wanted for the brutal subway attack is in custody. The victim was treated & released from the hospital & is getting the care, advocacy & support needed. Thank you to everyone who shared and submitted tips. pic.twitter.com/WHSUQ6FxIT
