The New York Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect after he allegedly smashed a police officer in the head with a bike chain in a Manhattan subway station.
“A seemingly random attack on an off-duty police officer at a Lower Manhattan subway station left commuters uneasy as the NYPD continued to search for the suspect on Wednesday,” reports NBC New York.
“Police say a man threw a metal bicycle chain through a subway car’s open door, hitting a 37-year-old cop in her face at the Park Place 2 train station on Tuesday. The suspect then got on a train and fled at the Chamber Street subway station,” adds the network.
“I mean it’s really scary, you take the train, and want it to be safe experience wherever you travel it’s one of best parts of New York,” said Soham Daga of the Financial District.
