Police have arrested a man who, back in October, allegedly attacked a fellow M train passenger at the Northern Boulevard station who asked him to move his legs.
Joseph Chamorro, an 18-year-old from Maspeth, was arrested yesterday and charged with assault after an Oct. 31 incident at the Long Island City station.
Police say Chamorro boarded a Manhattan-bound M train here just before 7 a.m. on that day, and sat next to a 59-year-old man, making “incidental physical contact” with his legs.
The man asked Chamorro to move his legs, but was punched in the face in an attack that resulted in a cut to the nose and broken eyeglasses, according to police.
The victim then got off at the Queens Plaza station and reported the incident. Chamorro, meanwhile, had remained aboard the train.
