Aug. 27, 2020 By Christian Murray

The police have released new footage of a man wanted for questioning in connection to a spate of smashed windows on subway cars.

The NYPD release footage Wednesday of a suspect taken on Aug. 1 by a witness who sent it to Crime Stoppers.

Police are looking to find the person—or persons—responsible for smashing dozens of windows on subway trains.

The NYPD said that there were 63 incidents that occurred from May 8 to Aug. 3 on the number 2, 3, 7 subway lines where glass was broken on subway cars. There have been many incidents since.

The MTA is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect, with an additional $2,500 from Crimestoppers.

The vandalism has cost the MTA more than $300,000 and has led to reduced service. Cars have be taken out of service in order for the new windows are installed.

Anyone with information in regard to these incidents is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

Hopefully the suspect will surrender or will be taken into custody properly and without incident if he is ever found. Otherwise his charges will be dropped, he will have public support and law enforcement will be the ones facing charges. That’s reality folks. Charges and warrants are being dropped while cops are being charged when resisting arrest goes bad.

Socialism destroys

All he has to do is say kicking out windows is his way of bringing about social justice and deblaziho will give him a medal.

I’m glad to hear you returned your stimulus check! You wouldn’t want to be destroyed by socialism ?

Not So Sunny in Sunnyside

Thank you Mayor DumBlasio you have completely destroyed our city! Releasing all the prisoners and now look at NYC it’s become a free for All. No bail, No jail and free Met tickets, how can anything go wrong?!


Maybe bored protesters, I meant rioters. They vandalize, spray graffiti and destroy trains, buses and govt property.


I don’t trust the MTA. Either the person doing this is mentally ill, wants to get some kind of political message out there, or this is all intentional sabotage from within the MTA to scour through its remaining funds so they are left so depleted that they think a bailout will happen if service comes to a complete stop.


Police are too busy collecting paychecks and getting ready to retire as opposed to finding this perp and all the other criminals running around the boroughs.

Why would the police do anything at the risk of the cops being arrested themselves. DA’s don’t prosecute non violent crimes in this city. If this guy does get arrested, he will be let go with Mets tickets in an hour.


When criminal saw uniform police they don’t do crime so mta we need more undercover police patrol in transit system now new york city is lawless and nobody care anything very sad


If only MTA had the money to install surveillance cameras on subways rather than wasting on digital display screens.

Village Idiot

You’re not oblivious when you are in the subway system there’s cameras everywhere? You know those round dark glass orbs? Yeah, there’s security cameras. How did you think there’s a picture of the perp?


me and my friends have been staking out the 7 train to snag that 12k but haven’t seen him.
