NYPD releases suspect sketch following attack on Muslim MTA Worker

Dec. 7, 2016 Staff Report

Police are searching for a man who allegedly attacked a Muslim MTA worker at Grand Central Station after abusing her on a Manhattan-bound 7 train Monday.

The victim, who was wearing her MTA uniform and hijab, was allegedly approached by a man on the 7-train at around 6.25 am who called her a terrorist and told her to “go back to your country.”

The 45-year-old victim exited the subway at Grand Central Station, where the man continued to follow her and make anti-Muslim statements, police said.

The suspect then pushed her down a flight of stairs, causing her to hit her right knee and twist her ankle. She was taken to NYU Langone Medical Center for treatment.

The suspect is described as a 25 to 35 year old Hispanic male, between 5’9” and 6’, and between 150 to 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark colored jacket and black knitted winter hat.

Police have released a sketch of the suspect, and anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

These unionized MTA workers are the frontlines, in which this is one of the most dangerous, embarrassing and humiliating jobs in the city and they deserve every single cent of it.

I do hope they catch this asshole. This behavior is totally unacceptable. All he is doing is playing into the hands of politicians like JVB who will use every isolated, random attack like this to smear his political opposition and anybody who happens to have voted for Trump.

They have a mandate. Trump, the incoming president approves. He called for violence at his campaign rallies. Encouraged the spying of his opponents by foreign governments, and told the prez of the Philippines that his policy of extrajudicial killing of suspected drug dealers was spot on. So that means if you see what you think is a drug dealer (anybody from the southside, right?), you are encouraged to shoot him in the head.

Hey dummy, Obama signed legislation authorizing him to carry out extra-judicial killings of American citizens abroad. Were you upset when that happened? He has the predator drones to do it too. Those Hellfire missiles cause a lot of “collateral damage” (dead innocent people) as well.

Maybe your doctor can prescribe you something for your hysterics.

Yeah, because nobody ever assaulted anyone else of a different ethnic group before Trump came along. Besides, the perp is apparent hispanic and we’re told they hate Trump too.

Idiot.

There have been a spike in racist and xenophobic attacks since the buffoon was elected. You have no point. Typical, though. For those with half a brain.

Be careful when walls are built. It not only keeps people out but one day it can be used to keep people in.

I’m guessing your home has walls. They keep you safe and prevent to ceiling falling on your head.
