Dozens of city subway trains were vandalized, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
The agency said approximately 78 windows were shattered on 36 trains, affecting approximately seven lines across Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.
According to transit officials, the suspect in question entered the Coney Island trainyard where the subways are parked to cause the massive amounts of damage.
"I don't know of a place that has more cameras than a Las Vegas casino than we do,” said New York City Transit President Richard Davey. “We will find you. We have your picture. I have no doubt we will find you.”
MTA officials said crews worked overnight to repair the damage, which will cost the agency tens of thousands of dollars.
NYPD Chief of Transit Michael M. Kemper said additional transit cops have been deployed.
