Sub­way spread as­sault

New York Post - - NEWS - Stephanie Pagones

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.
