Police looking for man and woman involved in 6 train fight

Posted: Updated:

Police say a man and woman were caught on video fighting on a 6 train during New Year's Day.

Video shows the man apparently dragging the woman by her legs, and the woman repeatedly punching and kicking the man on his upper body just moments before.

Police say the fight happened at 7 a.m., and that the man was seen dragging the woman off the train at the Elder Avenue station where he started to kick her in the stomach.

They say someone who saw the fight called 911. Police say when officers arrived at the scene, they found that the man appeared to be drunk.

He refused medical attention from EMS. Police say while officers waited for EMS to arrive, the woman told them that she and the man got into a verbal argument and it was resolved.

They say the man told them the same thing. Police did not file a report at the time because no one seemed injured.

Officials say after they received the video of the physical fight, they are looking for the man and woman. A complaint report was filed and an investigation is underway.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
