Commuters on a subway train found themselves in a terrifying situation as a teenager began throwing wooden planks from the moving train in a series of bizarre attacks. The unexpected and dangerous behavior left riders feeling vulnerable and alarmed.
A teenager recently caused chaos and terror during an ordinary subway commute, displaying an alarming level of reckless endangerment.
The New York Police Department is currently on the lookout for a young assailant who is suspected of attacking four subway passengers. The mode of attack involved hurling wooden planks at unsuspecting individuals waiting on platforms from a moving train.
According to the NYPD, two victims were hospitalized following a series of disturbing incidents that took place at three consecutive R Line stations in Queens on October 5th. The incidents were reported and confirmed by the authorities.
The individuals who were targeted in these unexpected assaults are finding it challenging to comprehend the motive behind this unanticipated hostility.
In the early afternoon, a 59-year-old woman became the initial target of the peculiar attack while she was waiting for her train on the southbound platform at Grand Avenue Station.
While aboard a moving train, a passenger threw a chunk of wood that hit her in the throat. She was immediately taken to Elmhurst Hospital and thankfully, her injuries were minor and she was in stable condition.
Just ten minutes after the first incident, two men waiting on the southbound platform at Elmhurst Avenue station were also targeted. They recounted that an individual on the train had thrown a block of wood at them, which luckily missed and did not cause any harm.
The recent string of attacks, in which a baby-faced suspect used pieces of wood to strike four commuters on a subway platform, has sent shockwaves throughout the city. It has also brought to light serious concerns about the safety and security measures in place within New York’s public transportation system.
The city is holding its breath as the search for the teenage culprit continues. Everyone is hoping for a quick resolution to the situation and a return to safer commutes.
