Shocking Video Shows Attack On Senior In NYC Subway

A senior citizen was abused on camera on the New York City subway this week. The dramatic video showed what appeared to be a young man beating an older person with her own cane, highlighting a significant increase in crime in the Big Apple over the last several years.

According to police, the incident occurred Friday at around 3:30 p.m. The woman was apparently attacked by a male, followed by the 60-year-old woman attempting to defend herself with her cane.

During the tumult, the man seized the cane and started beating the woman with it as she struggled on the floor.

The video shows the woman being struck more than 50 times, including in various parts of her body, including her head. The beating continued at such a pace that the cane fell apart. The woman grabbed a fragment of the cane, yet the man continued striking her with his fist.

The man finally kicked the motionless woman.

Police responded to the call but were unable to capture the suspect. No member of the public or the subway staff intervened in the attack.

The woman was sent to a hospital for treatment.

The attack on the woman also comes in the aftermath of the death of Jordan Neely. Neely died after a passenger, Daniel Penny, responded to Neely accosting people on the subway in what may have been a mental health episode.

Penny was indicted by a grand jury after placing Neely in a chokehold. Penny currently faces second-degree manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide charges. If convicted, the former Marine could face up to 15 years in prison.

The defendant has received millions of dollars for his attorneys.

“We’re confident that when a trial jury is tasked with weighing the evidence, they will find Daniel Penny’s actions on that train were fully justified,” his attorney said.

The recent beating followed a series of knife attacks on the NYC subway earlier this year. The June attacks left five people injured due to stabbing and slashing injuries.
