Police Probe Urine Attacks On Female MTA Employees

April 14, 2019 - 12:46 pm

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Police are investigating a urine-throwing attacker after two female MTA employees were singled out in separate incidents less than an hour apart.

The first attack was around 10:40 a.m. Friday. Police say a man threw a cup of urine on a 43-year-old subway conductor at the Brook Avenue 6 train stop in the Bronx.

Less than an hour later and just blocks away, a 43-year-old bus driver was going about her route in Mott Haven when one of her passengers threw a cup of urine in her face and eyes.

“It made me gag. The stench was awful. It was gruesome,” the bus driver told CBS 2. “The whole side of the shirt here and my left shoulder was soaked.”

Although police have yet to connect the incidents, the Transit Workers Union president believes the attacks could be linked.

He is advising bus drivers to keep their windows closed and conductors to put on their goggles if anyone approaches them at the subway platform.
