Suspect Arrested in Subway Station Attack

Police have made an arrest in the attack of a woman in the East Broadway subway station last month. 41-year old Ismael Acevedo was taken into custody and charged with assault and reckless endangerment, in connection with the February 4th incident.

The victim, LES resident Sabrina Scott, was punched and then fell onto the tracks as a Good Samaritan wrestled with her attacker. Fortunately, Derrick Oakes (the Good Samaritan) was able to pull Scott up before a train came along.

Police say Acevedo has no known address and is apparently homeless.
