Violent Christmas in NYC subway system

It was a violent Christmas in the New York City subway system.

There were at least four separate incidents.

In one incident a 37-year-old MTA worker was pepper sprayed through a train window as she was operating a train.  The northbound 2 train was pulling into the 135th St. and Lenox Ave. Station at around 3 a.m. when the attack occurred.

She was treated in the station and was taken to Harlem Hospital to be checked out.

The attacker took off and was not caught.

Another incident took place just before noon on a northbound 6 train as it approached the 33rd St. Station in Manhattan.  Two men got into an argument.  One of them pulled out a knife and stabbed the other man in the torso.

They both got off the train at the station and the attacker ran off.

EMS took the victim to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition.

Another person was the victim of an armed robbery in a subway station.  It happened around 9:30 a.m. on an R train platform of the 25th St. Station in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn.

A 31-year-old man and 30-year-old woman, believed to be tourists, were approached and robbed by a man who then jumped on a train and took off.  The victim was not hurt.

There were also two deaths in the subway system on Christmas.

In one incident a 52-year-old man, believed to be homeless, was found dead on an L train at the last stop at Rockaway Parkway in East New York, Brooklyn.  It was believed to be a medical issue and not criminal in nature.

Also, a man was hit and killed by an F train just before midnight.  The man was believed to have dropped something onto the tracks at a Jackson Heights, Queens subway station and had hopped down to retrieve it when the train was pulling into the station.
