The New York Police Department is looking for a man who, last month on a train, sexually attacked a youngster while holding a knife to his throat.
On October 18, about 3.30 p.m., the event occurred, according to authorities.
The unidentified man approached the 11-year-old girl as she was on the northbound No. 4 train and nearing the Bronx stop at East 149th Street and Grand Concourse.
After displaying the little child a knife and ordering her to keep silent in Spanish, the man terrified her.
Before stepping off the train at the Yankee Stadium station, which is situated at 161st Street, the unidentified male grabbed the little girl’s leg, waist, and butt.
Fortunately, the 11-year-old was unharmed, according to authorities.
A sketch artist was able to create a drawing based on the victim’s description, which the police were able to disclose.
Calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS is the recommended course of action for anybody who may know who the individual in the sketch is.
The organization said on Thursday that it would pay up to $3500 in exchange for information that would help identify and apprehend the individual.
DailyMail.com contacted the NYPD to inquire about any developments, including what is being done to track down the suspect.
The 11-year-attack old’s is only the most recent in a never-ending string of crimes that have plagued New York City’s streets and subways.
A 14-year-old girl was stabbed and injured less than two weeks ago on a train after getting into a fight with two other girls.
The 14-year-old was stabbed in the torso while riding a train in Washington Heights near Saint Nicholas Avenue and 191st Street. She was rushed to the hospital and is doing well.
Since it occurred on the train and there was no blood trail, the 14-year-old victim was clutching her side the whole time, MTA cleaner Walter R. Lewis told the New York Post. She claimed to have a past relationship with the victim of the stabbing.
According to NYPD, the girl was with a 13-year-old boy who was hurt, but not stabbed, while trying to break up the brawl.
Nine individuals have died on the subway system since the year began, and another 13 have been hurt by careless shoves. The most recent victim of shove was assaulted in late October.
Now that the violence has reached a crisis point, Mayor Eric Adams said on Saturday that he will send extra police into the subways to stop assaults on passengers.
Just last week, authorities made video of the insane assailant who pushed a 22-year-old woman down a flight of stairs at a Queens subway station available to the public.
The woman was waiting for the No. 7 train on the platform at the 82nd Street station when a man came up behind her and started beating her in the face, according to the police.
After forcing her down the steps and dumping her suitcase after her as she lay at the bottom, he proceeded to abuse her.
The wounded ladies were then abandoned on the subway’s lower level when the man made a U-turn.
Another horrific video of a lady pleading for assistance while being abused by a man on the metro while other passengers ignored her appeared online in May.
The man can be seen rushing around the railway compartment in the footage while yelling expletives.
The lady he sat next to gets up to go while others try to get away from him. But before she can go, he seizes her and starts terrorizing her.
In the footage, the man can be seen shoving the lady into the seat while taking hold of her hair.
Other motorcyclists disregard the victim’s cry for help as she screams, “Help! Help!”
A short while later, the man yells at the lady to “Get Up!” before pushing her to a different part of the train vehicle.
According to Mayor Adams, just six crimes on the subway occur on average every day, despite the idea that crime in New York City is out of control.
Adams has promised, however, to take further security steps to ensure that locals and tourists feel secure.
a new plan by the mayor to increase security on the subway by adding 1,200 extra shifts, or 10,000 more hours each day.
The extended relationship we are establishing today with Governor Hochul will address both the perception and reality of safety, building on the accomplishments of our Subway Safety Plan, Adams added.
The main conclusion is that both passengers and those considering violating the law will see additional cops on the system.
A new training program for subway cops on how to assist mentally ill passengers will also be required. The idea will complement the city’s upcoming opening of two new mental institutions.
