Subway spread assault
A racist manspreader assaulted a woman on the subway because she asked him to give her a bit more room to sit down, police said Saturday.
The 34-year-old victim was seated inside a northbound E train Tuesday at around 5:10 p.m. when the man plopped down partially on top of her, according to police.
When she asked him to move, he shouted, “Just because you’re African-American, you think you can goon your Kanye West rant, you black b---h,” according to cops, who have released an image of the suspect.
Later, as the woman was preparing to exit the train, she bumped his bag, prompting him to spit on the back of her head, police said.
The matter escalated even further when both passengers left at the Seventh Avenue station in Manhattan. After she grabbed the man’s backpack to confront him, he punched her in the shoulder and spit in her face again, then fled back onto the train, according to police.
Cops describe the suspect as white or Hispanic, in his 30s and approximately 5foot-9 and 150 pounds.
