Police Seek Suspect in East Broadway Subway Attack
Tonight Police released a sketch of the suspect they’re searching for in the attack on a woman in the East Broadway subway station Friday night. At around 6pm, a man went after Lower East Side resident Sabrina Scott, before a good Samaritan came to her defense. In the scuffle that ensued, Scott was pushed onto the F Train tracks. Fortunately, Derrick Oates, the man who came to her aid, was able to pull Scott up before a train came along.
Police describe the suspect as a light-skinned, Hispanic male, 35-40 years old. They believe he’s about 6 foot tall, weighing 200 pounds. At the time of the attack, he was wearing light blue jeans and a tan sweater. He was clean-shaven, had a shaved head and a pock-marked face.
