Subway riders film brute kicking elderly woman in the face instead of trying to help
[NYPOST] An elderly woman was repeatedly kicked in the face and body during a savage Bronx subway attack caught on video.
The video, which was posted to Twitter by user @BKLYNRELL1, shows the man assault the victim as she is sitting in a northbound No. 2 train around 3 a.m. March 10, police said.
The woman, who was alone, tries to defend herself as he continues to attack her ‐ all while other straphangers can be heard shouting in the background.
As the train was stopped at Nereid Avenue, the man yells something at his victim before turning around, looking at the camera and shouting, "WorldStar that, my n‐a." ‐ referring to the popular social media page that is filled with violent videos. He then got off the train.
No one called 911 right away, police said, and the person behind the camera continued recording the woman as she held her hand to her head.
Police weren’t notified until the train arrived at the next and last stop, at Wakefield-241st Street station, when a bystander approached a police officer in the station.
The witness told police the victim had suffered a small cut to her head, but the woman has not yet come forward to police.
