72 Year Old Woman Pummeled In NYC Subway Station

Woman, 72, pummeled in NYC subway station attack: cops.

A 72-year-old woman was pummeled in the face by another female straphanger inside a Bronx subway station Thursday night, cops said.

The senior was getting off the elevator at the 161st Street–Yankee Stadium station around 7:15 p.m. Thursday when another woman started punching her repeatedly in the face, causing bruising and swelling, police said.

The attacker then fled on foot, cops said.

The elderly woman was taken to Lincoln Medical Center in stable condition, with a minor cut on her eye, authorities said.

Police released photos of the suspect, who remained at large Friday afternoon.

She is described as about 35 to 40 years old with a dark complexion, standing around 5-foot-6 and weighing around 200 pounds.

She was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, tan pants, black sandals, and a black cover around her head, and was carrying a black book bag at the time of the incident.

The motive for the assault was unclear on Friday.

About 50 minutes later, a 19-year-old man was critically injured during a stabbing as he walked up the stairs at the Fulton Street and Van Siclen Avenue train station in Cypress Hills, authorities said.

The teen was leaving the J and Z station when he exchanged words with an unidentified man, who then stabbed him with a knife multiple times, cops said.

The nature of the clash was not immediately known.

The victim was taken to Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center, where he was listed in critical but stable condition.

The suspect, believed to be in his 20s, fled the scene and has not been caught.

Police say he has a light complexion and stands around 5-foot-7, weighing about 160 pounds, with a slim build and black hair that was pulled back in a ponytail.

He was last seen wearing a red shirt with letters “CK” in the front, black Adidas sweatpants, black sneakers and carrying a black sweater over his right shoulder.

Earlier this week, a 36-year-old man was attacked and robbed on a Queens subway platform when he confronted a fellow passenger for vaping on the train, cops said.

The straphanger was sitting on a southbound R train approaching 36th Street around 4 p.m. Tuesday when he asked the man sitting next to him to stop vaping, police said.
