NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- A Long Island Rail Road rider says he found himself near a passenger making death threats and anti-Muslim remarks during a phone call on a train Wednesday morning. 

Jay Benjamin, who posted video of the call on Twitter, was on an Oyster Bay train heading to Penn Station when he said a man sitting near started berating and threatening a call center operator on the phone.

"Here’s a lovely LIRR commuter who threatened to 'find and kill' a call center person 'and all Muslims while he was at [it>.' Said we were going to 'bomb them all and wipe them off the earth,'" Benjamin tweeted.

In the video that man can be heard saying, "Go to your call center and go f--k yourself... You dirty c-------er. I’m gonna f-----g kill you.”

The man didn't appear to know he was being recorded. He has not been identified.

Last month, a Long Beach man was charged with a hate crime after he was caught on video yelling racist and sexist remarks at a woman onboard another LIRR train.
