Throwing Urine in Face of MTA Workers
By Dan Gesslein
Cops say the suspect is responsible for assaults on a subway conductor and a bus driver in two different locations in the Bronx an hour apart.
At around 10:30 am on April 12, cops say the suspect approached an off-duty MTA conductor inside the Brook Avenue station of the Number 6 subway line. He doused the conductor in the face when he threw a cup of urine at her.
The MTA worker fled the station and was rushed to Westchester Square Hospital where she was examined and released.
An hour later the suspect struck again. At around 11:25 am, he boarded a bus in front of 250 Grand Concourse. He proceeded to throw a cup of urine in the face of the 43-year-old bus driver while she was driving the BX2 bus.
The suspect fled the bus and the driver was treated at Lincoln Hospital.
The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s. He is 160 pounds and was last seen wearing a burgundy hooded sweater, a dark colored jacket, beige pants and red and black sneakers.
