Police seek man who dumped urine on 2 MTA workers
Police are looking for the man accused of throwing cups of urine at two MTA transit workers' faces.
Police say the first incident happened on April 12 around 10:30 a.m. inside of the Brook Avenue 6 subway station. They say the suspect punched the 43-year-old on-duty female MTA conductor in the face, before splashing her with urine he had in a container.
Officials say the individual fled the station to the street.
The victim was treated and released from Westchester Square Hospital.
The second incident happened on April 12 in front of 250 Grand Concourse around 11:25 a.m. They say the suspect threw urine on the 43-year-old MTA bus operator Trellis Robinson on a northbound BX2 bus.
Officials say the suspect fled on foot northbound on Grand Concourse.
Robinson was treated and released from Lincoln Hospital. She has been working as a bus driver for the last nine years.
"Just seeing the video had me in shivers," Robinson says of the video of the attack. "It is the most degrading thing someone could ever do to you, to throw their urine in your face."
The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s. He last seen wearing a burgundy hooded sweater, a dark-colored jacket, beige pants and red and black sneakers.
Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
