According to police reports on Monday, a 14-year-old boy was apprehended for allegedly vandalizing 97 windows on multiple subway trains in the previous month.
Last Wednesday, law enforcement officials apprehended a teenager in Brooklyn. The minor’s identity has not been disclosed due to their age.
On September 12th, a teenage individual caused extensive damage by breaking windows on 45 W trains over a span of approximately 29 hours. The incident resulted in significant losses.
Service disruptions on various subway lines, including the B, D, N, F, and Q lines occurred when the affected trains had to be removed from operation.
Richard Davey, the President of NYC Transit, expressed his strong disapproval of the vandalism, labeling it as “outrageous.”
According to the MTA, the approximate cost of damage is estimated to be $500,000.
