Police say a 70-year-old man was assaulted during a haphazard assault on a Midtown train platform on Tuesday morning.
Tuesday, just before 11 a.m., as the elderly victim exited the N train at West 32nd Street and Broadway, a stranger allegedly struck her in the face multiple times, police say.
According to police, the heartless maniac then emptied the injured man’s wallet of $200 before kicking his cellphone onto the train tracks. Paramedics transported him to a nearby hospital with minor injuries, according to the police.
Wednesday, in an effort to apprehend the assailant, the police issued a photograph of him.
A maniac was additionally apprehended on Tuesday for allegedly dousing an NYPD officer in an East Harlem subway station with rubbing alcohol before threatening to set the officer on fire.
Police report that James Murphy, 58, of Manhattan, was charged with assault, reckless endangerment, and resisting arrest in connection with the irrational assault that occurred on the southbound 2/3 platform of the station at 135th Street and Lenox Avenue early Tuesday morning.
