Subway attack in New York: man is arrested while kicking an elderly woman



Video of the attack on a Bronx subway car was distributed online. It showed a tall man in glasses, a dark jacket, and a knit cap that the woman violently kicked while she was on a train. Spectators recording a video of the attack shouted "ooohh, ahhhh, naahh" when the man hit the woman, but they did not intervene to stop him. It is not clear what happened before the attack or whether the two know each other.

After the attack, the woman seemed to wipe away tears as she quietly sat in a corner and cell phone cameras pointed at her.

When the man passed by bystanders and got off the train, he shouted "WorldStar that!" a reference to a popular website that publishes, among other things, videos of people involved in disputes.

The police identified the suspect as Marc Gomez, 36, of Yonkers. He was arrested on Saturday in Manhattan and charged with multiple assaults and harassment, the NYPD said in a statement.

The attack took place on March 1

0, but the video was recently released. After the incident, the woman drove another stop north and was hit by EMS when she left the train, the NYPD said in a statement. She said she suffered from bleeding and swelling with cuts on her face.

She was treated and released from the hospital, receiving the care, advocacy and support she needs, said New York City Police Chief Dermot F. Shea.
