FOX 5 NY (NEW YORK) - A woman pushed, scratched and bit a subway rider who tried to sit in a seat that had her bag on it, according to police.
The alleged subway rage occurred aboard a Manhattan-bound F train from Queens last Friday at about 9:45 a.m.
The 45-year-old victim asked a woman to move her bag so she could sit down. When the woman ignored her, the victim attempted to sit down anyway.
That's when police say the seated women flew into a rage. They say she scratched the other rider on the chest, pulled her hair and bit her forearm, causing bleeding.
The suspect fled when the train stopped at the 21st Street and Queensbridge station in Long Island City.
The victim was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital in stable condition. The attacker remains at large.
Police are asking anyone who recognizes the woman to contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers at any of the following:
WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
The NYPD says all calls/texts are strictly confidential.
