UPDATE: On December 8th, the NYPD reported that the suspect– a 32-year-old man from Stuytown– has been arrested and charged with menacing as a hate crime, aggravated harassment and criminal possession of a weapon.
MANHATTAN – The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task force is now searching for the deranged man armed with wooden daggers, who though unprovoked, police say, made despicable statements and threatened to kill a woman on the subway, after their train left the East 59th Street-Lexington Avenue station on the Upper East Side.
Investigators say it was around 7:20 am last Monday morning, November 29th, on a southbound 4 train, when the sicko started making vile statements to the woman out of nowhere— then threatened to kill the 46-year-old victim on the subway, brandishing two two-foot long wooden daggers while making the treat.
WARNING: The suspect’s repulsive statements are printed below this line.
“You fucking uppity white bitch,” cops said the dagger-wielding maniac told the victim as the train sped south towards Union Square, ‘I’m going to murder you.’
The madman’s disgusting rant didn’t stop there, cops said.
“You should be sucking my black cock,” the suspect told the woman.
“You’re lucky I don’t kill you,” were the deranged man’s final words to her according to police.
Photos taken inside the downtown four train show the deranged suspect sitting on the floor in a ripped jeans and a red hoodie— one dagger in his hands in a stabbing position as he held his face, the other in his pocket.
Investigators note the suspect has a tattoo on his face that could make him easier to identify. The ink appears to be the Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol for ‘ankh’ or the ‘key of life,’ which resembles a cross with a circle on top.
If you recognize the man in the photos or have any information on the menacing that took place aboard the four train, please contact NYPD Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-8477.
