New Yorker charged with attempted murder
A black man attacked a white man in a New York City subway Wednesday, attempting to shove him into the path of a train while shouting “I hate white people,” police sources tell local media.
A 51-year-old black male named Gary Weeks reportedly confronted a 28-year-old white man at a subway station. Weeks then tried to push the man on the tracks, anonymous police sources recounted to the New York Daily News.
Weeks was arrested and charged with attempted murder and a hate crime, but not before spitting in a police officers’ face, according to the New York Post. This attack comes after another subway attack earlier this month, in which a Queens woman was pushed in front of a subway train car and killed.
