Man Punches Subway Rider After She Complains About His Manspreading

Man Punches Subway Rider After She Complains About His Manspreading

The 37-year-old commuter was prompted to speak up against the unidentified subway rider when he spread his legs so far apart that she was essentially "pressed against the wall". When she requested the man to give her some room, he started yelling, using a range of sexist slurs.

"B--, you ain't nothing!" "I've raped white b--s like you, f-- c--! You ain't nothing, you f-ing b-ch!'"

A Brooklyn woman said she was punched in the face while riding the subway to work in Manhattan Thursday, and a following confrontation between riders was captured on video.

The good Samaritan, who described himself as being "not on duty right now", told him to "get the f-k off the train".

But the man then socked her in the mouth, bloodying her lip and knocking her head into the wall behind her, she said. Soon after, Saia's lower lip started bleeding, which is when a Good Samaritan stepped in.

After tweeting her annoyance at not being able to file a police report, an NYPD commanding officer Deputy Inspector Nicole Papamichael reached out, writing: "Sorry to hear about your bad experience". Following the incident, Saia reportedly published a Facebook post to explain how she put in her earbuds and attempted to ignore the man as he went on an unintelligible tirade. "Get off the train, bro, you just f***ing hit a lady", the man can be heard saying on a video that was taken of the second half of the incident. "I said 'What are you doing?'" he said. Conde explained how he chose to step in after witnessing the man punching Saia and seeing nobody come to her aid. "This is the "man" who hit me on the N train this morning".

The assailant, as seen on the video, appears to be an African-American male.

In her Facebook post, Saia said she reported the incident to police, although the NYPD said they did not have a report on file as of Friday morning.

"My next step was blow this up on social media", Saia told the Daily News. "This took me by surprise". I want my neighbourhood to be safe. "I don't want this to happen to other women or men".

Saia, who works as an office manager, went back to the 17th Precinct stationhouse and once again got resistance from the same officer.
