Subway rider used cane to attack straphanger who bumped him on Upper East Side train: cops


A man used a cane to whack a subway rider who bumped into him on an Upper East Side No. 6 train, cops said Wednesday.

The angry straphanger was riding an uptown train near Lexington Ave. and E. 96th St. at about 8:30 p.m. Oct. 30, when a 59-year-old man accidentally jostled him, cops said.

He responded by swinging his cane at the man’s face, causing his nose and face to swell up.

Cops released photos of the attacker Wednesday. Police describe him as Hispanic, in his late teens or early 20s, with a thin build, wearing a white baseball cap, white hooded shirt and blue jeans.
