Police looking for woman in NYC subway spray attacksPosted: Updated:
(AP) - Police are looking for a woman who went on a rampage at two Manhattan subway stations, spraying people with a substance suspected to be mace.
The woman first targeted a station in Harlem at 125th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue on Friday around noon. One man was hit in his eye at close range.
Authorities say she then left the station and sprayed four more people on the street.
Minutes later, a woman was sprayed in the station at West 96th Street and Broadway.
Police responded but were unable to catch up with the attacker, who is still on the loose.
The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incidents.
