Subway riders film brute kicking elderly woman in the face instead of trying to help
An elderly woman was repeatedly kicked in the face and body during a savage Bronx subway attack caught on video.
The video, which was posted to Twitter by user @BKLYNRELL1, shows the man assaulting the 78-year-old victim as she is sitting in a northbound No. 2 train around 3 a.m. March 10, police said.
The woman, who was alone, tries to defend herself as he continues to attack her — all while other straphangers can be heard shouting in the background.
As the train was stopped at Nereid Avenue, the man yells something at his victim before turning around, looking at the camera and shouting, “WorldStar that, my n—a.” — referring to the popular social media page that is filled with violent videos. He then got off the train.
No one called 911 right away, police said, and the person behind the camera continued recording the woman as she held her hand to her head.
Police weren’t notified until the train arrived at the next and last stop, at Wakefield-241st Street station, when a bystander approached a police officer in the station.

The woman was treated at the station by EMS for bleeding and swelling, but refused additional medical attention.
Investigators are hoping to speak to the victim, and are searching for her attacker.

My view: Disgusting what this world has come to people wanting "likes" more than helping someone who's being attacked by an evil monster. Shame on the people on the train for doing nothing to help the woman, so sad.
