Feces attack suspect Frank Abrokwa back behind bars after arrest in Harlem

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — The man accused of smearing feces in a woman’s face at a Bronx subway station is now behind bars after being re-arrested.

Frank Abrokwa is being held after a judge set $5,000 bond for charges stemming from a violent incident at a warehouse in Harlem.

He faces new charges of criminal mischief and harassment.

He reportedly broke a warehouse window with a barbell on Friday.

The 37-year-old was released without bond earlier this month for the disgusting subway incident and a separate Brooklyn hate crime charge.

Upon his release, MTA chief Janno Lieber said, “It defies common sense.”

Authorities say Abrokwa also has a history of transit-related attacks. On January 7, he allegedly punched a 30-year-old man on the subway platform at the 125th Street station on Lenox Avenue in Harlem.

And on February 5, he allegedly punched a 53-year-old man at the Port Authority bus station.

He was also arrested on Feb. 22, when police say he was caught trying to steal screwdrivers and pepper spray from a hardware store in the Bronx.

According to police, Abrokwa has 44 previous arrests, one felony conviction and 10 misdemeanor convictions.
