At around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, on a 2 train heading north, a 32-year old man and two other “unknown” men got into an argument that turned physical when the three exited the train at West 72nd Street and Broadway, according to a police report.
“The [two] individuals kicked and punched the victim numerous times about the body and pushed the victim onto the train tracks,” the report said. “They then fled the location to parts unknown.” The victim was taken by EMS to Mount Sinai West hospital, with a broken nose and right middle finger.
Police are asking for the public’s help in finding the alleged assailants. One is described as having “a medium complexion and a medium build. He was last seen wearing a red jacket and black pants.” The other also has a medium build, and was last seen wearing all black.
