Last Saturday, a porter injured a two-year-old boy on the subway in New York City. This is the latest violent incident that plagued the bus system.
The attack took place on Saturday afternoon on the northbound C train in Manhattan.
The New York Post reported that the train was on West 116th Street and Douglas Boulevard when the woman approached a mother sitting on the train and her boy for money.
When the begging gar got too close, the mother asked, “Can you walk six feet away?”

The unidentified beggar did not follow the request, but stepped on the woman’s left foot.
“Why are you stepping on me?” Mom asked, connecting with the toddler at least once before the pickpocket started punching wildly.
The child’s face and ears were injured.
The attack ended only after witnesses pulled the suspect out of the mother and baby.
An ambulance transported the boy to Mount Sinai-Mount St. Luke and released him.
At the same time, the suspect was able to escape when the train arrived at the next station. She is said to be in her forties, heavy, with neck tattoos and full of movement. She is wearing a gray hoodie, faded jeans, boots and a white mask.
PIX11 reported that this was not the only subway attack in Harlem over the weekend.
On Sunday, a 32-year-old man was attacked on two north trains near 110th Street and Lenox station.
In the past month, subway violence in New York City has increased dramatically
The person suffered minor injuries to his limbs. The suspect in the attack was a man in dark clothes who also avoided arrest.
The attack coincided with a surge in subway violence in New York City in recent weeks.
In early February, a 21-year-old hacker was accused of killing two homeless people on Train A. He is currently detained without bail.
Rigoberto Lopez was also charged with attempted murder because he killed two other people in a frenzied killing.

Transport workers requested the resumption of the 24-hour subway timetable, which was suspended in May to avoid clearing the station due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Employees claim that the overnight period when the subway is currently not operating has become dangerous.
The MTA claimed that five subway workers were beaten during the overnight period when the train was closed.
Meanwhile, since August, there have been nearly 300 allegations of harassment against subway workers.
At present, the operating time of the system has increased by two hours. However, if there is no service between 2 am and 4 am every day, there are still two hours to be cleaned.
The MTA recently asked the New York Police Department to deploy more than 1,500 officers in the subway system.
Instead, the New York Police Department sent less than half of the notice on Tuesday, adding 644 police officers to the subway station.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the public transportation system has suffered huge losses, and as people work from home more frequently, the number of riders has dropped by about 90%.
