Rail fiend seen in 2nd bash: cops


The notorious “transit nuisance” who was caught on camera shoving a woman into the side of a Brooklyn train could be facing more charges for attacking another woman in Queens earlier in the day, police sources said.

Isaiah Thompson, 28, is currently facing attempted assault, menacing, reckless endangerme­nt and criminal trespass charges for throwing a woman against an idling subway train at the DeKalb Ave. station in Fort Greene Wednesday evening. Thompson then jumped down onto the tracks and ran into the tunnel. When cops arrived, he was nowhere to be found.

Police launched their own investigat­ion once the witness video surfaced. They arrested Thompson (inset) after recognizin­g him from past subway attacks. Cops later got a call from a woman in Queens who saw the video on the news and told authoritie­s that Thompson attacked her earlier Wednesday.

The woman, 58, told authoritie­s that Thompson shoved her into a southbound F train at the Jamaica Ave.-179th St. station around 7 a.m. The victim was treated for a cut on her face, police sources said.

Thompson has yet to be charged for the Wednesdaym­orning Queens assault.

His arraignmen­t for the Brooklyn attack was pending Friday.

Over the summer, Thompson was arrested for allegedly exposing himself while surfing on the outside of an A train at the 14th St. station on May 16 and for pulling an emergency brake on a No. 2 train at 14th St. on May 21 during the evening rush.

He has been busted for 14 other transit related crimes, including trying to shove a woman onto the tracks.

When questioned after his earlier arrests, Thompson said that he exposed himself to commuters “because I wanted the attention.”
