Shocking footage shows NYC man kick woman down Brooklyn subway escalator
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK: In a gut-wrenching act, a stranger kicked a woman down an escalator at a Brooklyn subway station, a video of which was captured by surveillance cameras. In the footage, the surprised woman can be seen falling down several feet after being kicked in the chest by the man. The woman confronted the man after she felt push past her on the escalator and asked him to 'say excuse me' rather than pushing her. The man kicked her in the chest before saying 'I did'.
According to New York City police, the assault took place after the woman approached the man for having shoved past her on the escalator at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center Station last week at around 7:15 pm. In the footage captured by surveillance cameras, the woman can be seen falling and rolling backward to the bottom of the escalator after the accused kicked her before climbing up the escalator without even turning to see if she was alright.
