Transit Union Warns of Possible Female Serial Attacker

Recommended Posts

TWU Local 100 President Tony Utano is warning transit workers of a possible serial attacker targeting women on the job.

“Bus Operators should keep their windows closed and Train Conductors should make sure they are wearing their goggles and immediately shut their windows if someone approaches on a platform,” Utano said. “We will do everything we can to help the police catch this disgusting individual and put him in handcuffs.”

A female No. 6 train conductor was punched in the face and splashed with a liquid believed to be urine at the Brook Ave. station Friday morning at about 10:40 a.m. A  female Bx1 Bus operator was splashed in the face with urine at East 138th Street and Grand Concourse, which is about 15 blocks away. You can see the news report on that incident here.

Utano is asking the NYPD to increase their presence along the No. 6 line and bus routes in the area. If the attacker’s image was captured on video, Utano said TWU Local 100 will flood the area with the image along with an appeal to members of the public to call the police if they recognize the individual. “This abuse of transit workers is  outrageous,” Utano said. “No other group of workers gets treated like this.” The assailant was described as a black male, about 5-feet-7 inches tall, 160 to 180 pounds, wearing a Navy sweatshirt with a hood, khaki pants and red sneakers.
