Woman charged in apparent violent, racist tirade on D train in NYC
NEW YORK CITY -- A Brooklyn woman was arrested on suspicion of unleashing a violent, racist tirade against a straphanger onboard a D train.
It happened Tuesday around 8:30 a.m. on a northbound D train near 9th Avenue in Borough Park, Brooklyn.
Police said 40-year-old Anna Lushchinskaya, of Sheepshead Bay, faces felony assault charges after she yelled profanities at a 24-year-old Asian woman and struck her with an umbrella handle and keys.
Videos on social media from the incident showed what appeared to be Anna Lushchinskaya making racist slurs at both the victim and a good Samaritan who intervened, but police have not charged the suspect for bias crimes.
