A New york city City man narrowly missed being crushed beneath a train train after a hammer-wielding opponent making homophobic remarks combated with and then tossed a 21- year-old straphanger onto the tracks prior to fleeing the station, authorities stated.
The victim informed authorities he was waiting on the northbound platform when a man began making anti-gay statements to him and then tried to hit him with a hammer– however missed out on.
” The private continued to have a hard time with the victim and threw him onto the train track,” cops said.
A group of Good Samaritans neighboring were able to signal the motorman to stop the showing up train and avoid a possible tragedy. The 21- year-old was then assisted back up onto the platform.
The NYPD on Tuesday launched a sketch of the suspect desired in the attack.
