Cecile Komplita was struck in the head by a plant on the metro stairs

It was comparable to a scene from a real-life, nightmare Popeye cartoon.

A woman on her way to jury duty in Manhattan was injured in the subway when a lunatic dropped a one-foot-tall, hefty plant on her head.

The 63-year-old man was entering the station at East 51st Street and Lexington Avenue in Midtown around 9:30 a.m. on Monday and was standing at the bottom of the stairs when the falling flowers struck him.

“He did this purely for amusement. His purpose was to cause me harm. “For what purpose?” Cecile Komplita, a native New Yorker, fumed to The Post. “Had it been contained in a pot, it would have fractured my head or worse.”

The suspect’s accuracy was “so amazing,” according to Komplita, that she suspects he has “done this before.”

The police told Komplita that they believe her assailant threw one of two plants he ripped from “huge concrete pots” outside the station entrance, she claimed.

The police informed the woman that they suspect her attacker threw one of two plants from “large concrete planters” positioned at the entrance of the metro station.

The astonished straphanger initially believed she had been struck by a falling piece of plaster, but “when I looked down, I saw a plant and my head was filled with dirt.” I reclimbed the steps and then observed him.

“He certainly appeared insane. He did not resemble a homeless or destitute individual. “He obviously resembled a person with mental issues,” added Komplita.

 

Komplita summoned a police officer, but the NYPD was unable to locate the psychopath.

The police told Komplita that they believe her assailant threw one of two plants he ripped from “huge concrete pots” outside the station entrance, she claimed.

Komplita explained that she did not submit a police report because she arrived late to jury service.

Ironically, Komplita said, “I’ll be arrested for not turning there, but he’ll never be arrested.” The police informed her that if they do discover her assailant, “they will bring him in, write him up, and issue him a court summons, but he will never appear in court.”

Komplita stated that she suffered a “minor concussion. The first day was quite dismal. Now I must travel to a different station to avoid this insane individual. Therefore, my life is interrupted.”

The financial advisor tweeted the gruesome incident next door “so that others would be cautious, because certainly nothing happens unless something terrible happens to somebody.” I’m attempting to prevent that from occurring.”

“He did this purely for amusement. His purpose was to cause me harm. “For what purpose?” New York native Cecile Komplita stated. “Had it been contained in a pot, it would have fractured my head or worse.”

The Staten Island native who has resided in Manhattan since 1984 stated that the city is “going in the wrong direction” and that she is “seriously considering” relocating to Texas.

“Bail reform must be revised. The cops must be granted more discretion. They are helpless. The reform of bail is out of control. She sneered, “If I don’t take much and don’t kill anyone, I can do whatever I want.”

“At first it was taxes, and now it’s criminality. Now you have provided me with two reasons to depart. The only remaining incentive to remain is the cuisine.”

The crime occurred in Midtown North, where transit crime has increased by 40% this year until December 4, with 66 instances compared to 47 for the same period in 2021.
