Video shows a man kicked a woman down a subway escalator at the Atlantic Avenue Barclays Center station in Brooklyn, New York.
The perpetrator walked past the victim on an ascending escalator when the assault took place on September 9. According to the New York Post, the two shared a “verbal exchange” which prompted the man to turn around and kick the woman in the upper torso.
The New York Daily News has reported that the victim told the man to, “say excuse me,” when he walked by. He responded, “I did,” before booting the woman.
The woman then tumbled down to the bottom of the escalator, where she laid riddled with cuts, bruises, and ankle trauma. The victim refused to seek medical attention for her injuries.
