Looks like the high number of subway attacks last year has a big chance of being repeated this year.
A week since Michelle Go, 40, was pushed to her death at a Times Square subway station, another random NYC subway shoving attack occurred Sunday morning in a lower Manhattan subway station.
The NYPD said a male suspect pushed a 62-year-old victim who was standing on the platform at the Fulton St. station around 11:30 in the morning.
The elderly victim fell to the roadbed and was slightly hit by an operator of a southbound C train who was able to pull the brake to stop a stronger impact on the victim.
Sources said the man who was conscious and alert suffered a laceration to the right leg and was immediately rushed to the New York-Presbyterian Hospital Downtown.
The local police are now tracking down the suspect of the attack.
Based on the NYPD data, 461 subway attacks were recorded last year which is higher by 102 compared in 2020.
The subway attacks last year are also considered the highest since 1997 when 501 assaults were recorded.
