The incident comes as crime on the city’s subways continue to gain attention amid the controversial death of Jordan Neely, who was reportedly acting erratically and threatening passengers on a subway train earlier this month before he was confronted and placed in a choke hold by Marine veteran Daniel Penny.

Penny was charged with second-degree manslaughter. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison.
