A hateful straphanger made anti-Semitic comments to a woman in Brooklyn, threatening to throw her onto the subway tracks, police said.
The 41-year-old victim was waiting for a Manhattan-bound 4 train at Utica Avenue in Crown Heights on December 2nd at around 6:30 a.m. when the stranger began screaming at her, cops said late Thursday.
The woman made anti-Semitic remarks and threats, and then followed the passenger onto the train where the rant continued, authorities said.
It was unclear what words were exchanged or what sparked the incident, cops said.
The victim endured the screed for five stops before getting off the train at Bowling Green.
Her tormentor stayed on the train.
The suspect was last seen wearing red sweatpants, a black bubble jacket and a red scarf.
The incident comes to light after over a dozen anti-Semitic attacks over the past two weeks.
The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident.
