LONG ISLAND CITY, QUEENS — A couple attacked a man on a 7 Train in Queens, then punched a woman who started recording the encounter, NYPD said.
A 39-year-old man was riding the train at about 1pm on Monday when a fellow commuter yelled, “What are you looking at?” and threatened to “beat the shit out of him,” NYPD said.
He then started punching the victim in the face.
The attacker, who was accompanied by a woman, followed the victim to the other side of the subway car. The woman spotted a female passenger filming the encounter and asked why she was recording before demanding her to delete the video.
The duo started beating up the woman filming, then ran off the train at Queensboro Plaza, NYPD said.
