May 11, 2019 - 11:43 am

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – An MTA worker is speaking out after being the latest transit employee to be attacked while on the job.

With a black eye and a bump on her forehead, the 42-year-old train operator -- identified only as Sandra -- told CBS 2 that a man punched her at random as she got off the F train at the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue station on Monday afternoon.

“I turned around and his fist was in my face. There was no conversation, there was no nothing, and that’s what scares me the most,” she said.

TWU Local 100 President Tony Utano says there have been several incidents in recent months in which transit workers have been attacked.

“Our people are getting punched, stabbed, spit on, urine throw in their face – this has got to stop,” Utano told CBS 2.

The MTA called the attacks reprehensible and said it’s working with police to address this issue.
