Manhattan: East Side Subways Snarled

 

Tens of thousands of riders on Lexington Avenue trains were delayed during last night’s rush period when a robbery suspect being chased by the police ran onto the tracks at the 116th Street station just after 4 p.m., transit officials said. Power to all 4, 5 and 6 trains between there and the 96th Street station was cut off for about an hour and a half. The shutdown also disrupted service north and south of the affected stations, delaying riders from the Bronx to Brooklyn. Six passengers left one of several trains stalled between stations, though transit officials warn against such unauthorized evacuations. Another passenger suffered an asthma attack, transit officials said. The police said that the robbery suspect eluded them.
