A racist jerk decided to spit on and punch a Black woman — after sitting on her thigh — while riding the subway in midtown NYC.
Police released a photo of the brute his 34-year-old victim was able to snap as they rode an uptown E train towards the Seventh Ave. station in Midtown about 5:10 p.m. Tuesday, police said.
When he claimed a seat next to hers on the crowded rush hour train, he ended up sitting on her thigh. She asked for a minute to readjust and scoot over – a simple request that launched the man on a crazy rant.
“Just because you’re African-American you think you can go on your Kanye West rant, b—h,” he yelled.
A few minutes later as the woman stepped off the train at the Seventh Ave. stop, the man spat on the back of her head. She grabbed his backpack to try to stop him, and he spit in her face and punched her in the shoulder, officials said. The man jumped back on the train and got away.
The victim suffered pain but refused medical attention.
The suspect is described as white-Hispanic, about 30, 5-foot-9, and 130 pounds. He was wearing a black T-shirt and a white-and-black “San Francisco” baseball cap with an orange bear on it.
Police are asking that anyone with information about this racist prick call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
