NYPD seeks subway 'manspreader' who assaulted rider

Cops in New York are looking for a short-tempered commuter who punched a fellow subway rider who asked him to move his legs.

A 59-year-old man riding a Manhattan-bound M train Wednesday morning before 7 a.m. told police that a young man got on at Northern Boulevard, sat down next to him, and then made "incidental physical contact" with his legs.

But when the older man asked the neighboring rider to move his legs, that man punched him in the face, police said, breaking his glasses and cutting his nose.
