Man with two wooden daggers threatens to kill woman after hurling anti-white insults on subway

A thug who allegedly threatened to kill a woman on the New York subway with two wooden spikes after making ‘anti-white statements’ is being hunted by police. 

The suspect wielded the large shivs at a 46-year-old woman near the 59th Street subway station in Manhattan on last Monday, cops said.

The man, who has an ankh hieroglyphic symbol on his face, was traveling on the subway at 7.20am on the ‘4’ train.

A photo taken by the victim shows the man holding a makeshift wooden stake while another one sticks out of his pocket.

No injuries were reported and he remains on the run.

The New York Police Department’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the incident.

They said in a statement today: ‘On 11/29/21, at approx. 7.20 AM, a female, 46, was on a S/B ‘4’ train in the vicinity of the 59th St station when a male made anti-white statements and threatened to kill her, while brandishing wooden daggers. 

‘Note tattoo on face. Any info? DM or call 1-800-577-TIPS.’

It comes amid a major crime surge in New York, with homicides soaring by 42 per cent since 2019.

Rising crime: NYC has seen an explosion in the incidences of violent assaults, murders, robberies and muggings in the past two years. Overall crime this year has gone up by more than 3 percent

Felony assault have also shot up in 2021 by more than 9 percent, from 19,046 to 20,776 so far this year. Robberies also saw an increase of 3.7 percent, with 12,318 reported.

Rapes rose from 1,329 to 1,357, an increase of more than 2 percent, and the number of shooting victims also went up from 1,724 to 1,725.

In an effort to curb the violent streak, the Bank of America reportedly told its Midtown employees on Friday to ‘dress down’ and avoid wearing company logos while commuting to the office.

On Friday afternoon, a man was left bloodied following a brutal attack on a Midtown subway platform in the city.

An MTA spokesperson said that the fight broke out between two men around 3.20pm on the northbound platform of the 49th Street station, which serves the city’s N and R trains.

The victim suffered obvious injuries to his head and was pictured sitting on the train station floor with bandages covering his eyes and forehead.

Officials said the man, whose jacket was splattered with blood, was taken to Bellevue Hospital. He held onto a red bandana as he was placed into the ambulance on a stretcher. 

That attack came just two days after a Columbia University doctoral student was knifed to death near the Ivy League college’s historic Manhattan campus – one of three people attacked by an ‘ecstatic’ gang member on a violent stabbing spree.

Davide Giri, 30, a PhD candidate in computer science, died around 11pm after being stabbed in the stomach by a 25-year-old member of the Bloods gang off-shoot, Everybody Killas, who has 16 prior arrests dating back to 2012 and was out on parole for a 2015 gang assault, police said. 

Officers arrested the suspect – Vincent Pinkney, of Manhattan- in Central Park 20 minutes later, after he had already stabbed an Italian tourist, Robert Malastina, 27, outside the park, howling with glee, and moved on to ‘menacing’ another man, 29, with a large kitchen knife as the victim strolled the park with his girlfriend.
