NYC suspects assault elderly man who asked to turn down volume on subway train: police


The New York City Police Department is looking for a pair of suspects who assaulted an elderly man on an Upper West Side subway train Thursday afternoon. 

At approximately 3:30 p.m. ET, officers responded to a 911 call of an assault in progress at the 96th Street and Broadway-7th Avenue subway station. 

Police were informed that a 78-year-old male victim on a moving southbound 1 train approaching the station asked an unknown individual on the train playing music via a speaker to lower the volume. 

The individual and his companion proceeded to punch the man in the face multiple times.
