A hostile scene was later reported at another Midtown Manhattan station, when one passenger left another bleeding during a fight on a platform.
The altercation between the two men broke out around 3:20 p.m. on the northbound platform of the station. 49th street, It serves the N and R lines north of Times Square, an MTA spokesperson said.
The victim suffered a head trauma and was transported to Bellevue Hospital on a stretcher. His head was bloody and bandaged when he was removed from the scene, photos of New York Post. It is unclear if the attacker used any object against his victim.
In 2021 there have been several homicides and natural deaths in the New York subway, in addition to various incidents, some more serious than others. In May, the violence led then-Governor Andrew Cuomo to claim that the subway was not safe for children. Months before, in January, the interim president Feinberg, denounced in a letter sent to the mayor that NYC’s violence and “mental health crisis” were wreaking havoc on the transportation system. Since then the situation has not improved.
