    A manager of a Subway in California is recovering from her injuries after being attacked by a customer. Monique Larios said she was hit in the face multiple times by a man she was just making a sandwich for last Thursday. “I did not expect it. He came around the corner and I said, ‘What are you going to do, hit me over ham?’ And he hit me,” Larios said. “He punched me and all I could remember is just black.” According to Larios, the customer, later identified as George Sandoval, escalated the situation because he wanted more ham on...

    A Good Samaritan intervened and tackled a brazen attacker who had allegedly battered and spat at an employee at an Indiana Subway restaurant. Gabriel Pitzulo, 23, managed to keep the alleged assailant pinned on the ground for eight minutes until law enforcement authorities were called to the Subway store in Indianapolis. The incredible moment was captured on the store's surveillance camera, showing the brave former high school wrestler charging at the attacker and successfully taking him down. The belligerent customer, later identified as Daniel Saunders, 31, was charged with one count of battery resulting in bodily injury, as reported by...
  • Gavin Newsom caught with hand in cookie jar again, exempts more 'friends' from $20/hour fast-food wage law

    Not too long ago, Gavin Newsom got caught with his hand in the cookie jar of political cronyism. In response to a draconian law passed raising fast-food worker wages to $20 an hour, known as A.B. 1228, Newsom carved out a little exemption for his friends at Panera Bread on the laughable grounds that these establishments bake bread on the premises. In reality, the owner of several Panera establishments was a high school buddy who was a really good donor to his campaigns. Once caught, Newsom backed off, but right when he thought no one was looking, he went right...

    Crime on the subways has become significantly more violent since the pandemic with the number of felony assaults soaring when compared to pre-pandemic levels, an analysis by The Post revealed. The number of attacks on trains that left victims injured jumped 53% from 2023’s 570 felony assaults to the 373 reported in 2019, according to stats. Those 200 extra felony assaults meant that attacks resulting in substantial injury accounted for 25% of 2,285 major crimes reported on trains and in stations in 2023, compared to just 15% of the 2,499 major crimes in 2019, the data

    The man who choked a homeless person to death in a New York City subway last year is set to go to trial in October, a New York judge determined Wednesday.

    Gov. Kathy Hochul defended her controversial initiative to flood the city’s public transit system with National Guardsmen, saying it’s going as planned — even as terrified straphangers vowed to avoid the rails after this week’s shooting on a packed A-train. “My objective was to make sure [the National Guard is] in our main transit hubs – you see them at Grand Central [Station] and other places, so they can free up [NYPD cops],” Hochul told reporters at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Midtown Saturday. “So the plan is working as we had expected.”
  • NYC subway rider who shot ‘aggressive’ straphanger during rush-hour commute won’t be charged: ‘Self defense’

    The Brooklyn straphanger who shot a berserk rider attacking him on a rush-hour train Thursday will not be charged, prosecutors said Friday. “Yesterday’s shooting inside a crowded subway car was shocking and deeply upsetting,’’ Oren Yaniv, a spokesman for the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, said in an an e-mailed statement. “The investigation into this tragic incident is ongoing but, at this stage, evidence of self-defense precludes us from filing any criminal charges against the shooter.” The shot man, Dajuan Robinson, 36, had bought the gun on the train and whipped it out during his attack on a stranger, who shot...

    Mayor Eric Adams on Friday blamed the shocking rush-hour shooting onboard a Brooklyn subway car on an agitator suffering from “severe mental health” issues, as he pushed for legislation that would allow police to institutionalize mentally unstable people. Adams claimed a 36-year-old aggressor was not “in the proper frame of mind” when he was filmed brawling with another man and was shot by his own gun onboard an A train as it pulled into the Hoyt-Schermerhorn Street station Thursday night. “When I looked at this tape and broke it down piece by piece and frame by frame, it is clear...

    A man was left critically injured after being shot multiple times Thursday afternoon while waiting on the platform of a Brooklyn subway station. The attack came a week after Gov. Kathy Hochul deployed hundreds of National Guard members and state troopers to check riders’ bags in an effort to deter crime so commuters could “feel safe.” “Teams of mental health workers” were also promised by Hochul to calm riders. CBS News New York reports the incident happened just before 5 p.m. on the northbound platform of the A/C line at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station.

    A harrowing video reveals the moments leading up to the New York City subway shooting, as the agitator accuses the other man of being a 'migrant beating up cops' in a heated argument. The 36-year-old man, who appeared to initiate the argument, was shot in the head with his own gun after the other man, 32, wrestled the weapon away from him and opened fire. In the video shot by a commuter on a northbound A train in Brooklyn Thursday afternoon, the aggressor, wearing a black hoodie and a yellow baseball cap, can be heard hurling threats at the other...

    NEW YORK — Gov. Kathy Hochul has pulled back the big guns in her subway safety surge, ordering the National Guard not to carry military-grade assault rifles when they check riders’ bags for weapons. Many of the 750 troops Hochul deployed Wednesday to check riders’ backpacks hauling laptops or school books or bags carrying groceries carried M4 carbines, military assault rifles whose 5.56mm rounds can defeat some body armor.

    If you slogged around during the first month of 2024 on the subways, you probably felt like there was a major delay every way you turned, and when you did get on the train, you were one wrong flicker of eye contact away from being a crime victim. With subway ridership hovering around 71% of pre-COVID normal, bus ridership at 60% of normal, and commuter rail at about three-quarters, we don’t want to lose any more riders to bad service or fear. But keeping straphangers riding the MTA will take work, just as the system has never felt more imperiled....

    New York Governor Kathy Hochul told subway riders who refuse to submit to bag checks to 'go home.' Her comments came as she defended stationing 750 national guard members at the Big Apple's busiest stations in a bid to clamp down on the rampant violence rocking the network. The guard members will be checking passengers' bags for weapons as they enter the system. Talking to Fox5, Hochul was asked what passengers who did not want their belonging searched should do. 'Go home,' she answered bluntly. 'We're not going to search you—you can say no. But you're not taking the subway.'...

    The 23-year-old woman busted last week in a brutal caught-on-video bottle attack on a New York City subway cellist was arrested again on Tuesday for allegedly stealing a pricey baseball cap. Amira Hunter was busted for petit larceny at the Nordstrom on West 57th Street at 3:40 p.m. for supposedly stealing a $235 Moncler baseball hat, police said. A witness called 911 to report the alleged theft, the authorities added. The latest arrest comes less than one week after Hunter was nabbed for allegedly bashing cellist Iain S. Forrest in the head while he was performing in the Herald Square...
