On a Saturday night, two subway riders reportedly punched a police officer in the head while on a train in the Bronx. The incident was partially captured on camera and was a bold attack on an officer who was on duty.
According to police and law enforcement sources, 24-year-olds Marquise Webb and Brian Innocent were apprehended for supposedly assaulting an NYPD lieutenant. The incident occurred at the 238th Street station in the Bronx after 9 p.m. when officers instructed the suspects to disembark from a subway car.
The Post has obtained footage that reveals two men repeatedly punching a uniformed officer in the face and body while the lieutenant tries to defend himself in the corner of the subway car.
The video footage depicts two men standing on the subway car while the assault takes place.
Upon reviewing more footage, it becomes apparent that the suspects quickly fled the scene while the police, including the resilient lieutenant, gave chase with their tasers at the ready.
According to authorities, a knife fight between two groups was reported at the 1 train station in Kingsbridge, prompting the police to respond to the scene. One of the groups had already left by the time law enforcement arrived.
According to police, the officer of the NYPD sustained cuts and bruises to his eye. He was immediately transported to St. Barnabas for medical attention and is currently in stable condition.
According to the police, Webb and Innocent managed to escape onto the train tracks but were eventually apprehended by the authorities.
Police have recovered a knife, box cutter, and straight razor after making the arrests, as reported by law enforcement officials.
According to the NYPD, Webb from Yonkers and Innocent from New Rochelle have been accused of multiple charges, including assault on a police officer, criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, obstruction of governmental administration, criminal trespassing, and disorderly conduct.
