A maniac wearing sparring gloves sucker-punched a subway conductor in the Bronx, then threatened to spit on him, cops said Wednesday night.
The attacker set upon the 33-year-old conductor as his train pulled into the Freeman St. No. 2 and 5 station in Foxhurst at about 9:05 p.m. Saturday.
The conductor stuck his head out the train window, and the gloved goon grabbed him by the collar, unprovoked, and punched him in the face, cops said.
“I should spit on you!” the man yelled before he left the station and ran south on nearby Southern Blvd., cops said.
Police describe the suspect as back, between 60 and 65 years old, and about 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7. He had gray hair and wore a dark baseball cap with sunglasses over the brim, a black hooded sweatshirt with a red insignia in front, black jeans, black shoes and black sparring gloves. He also carried a blue umbrella, cops said.
Cops are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
