A teenager and a woman punched and kicked a woman wearing a strap during a confrontation that erupted after one of the attackers hit the victim on a Bronx subway platform, it was announced Friday the police men.
The 42-year-old victim was waiting on the platform of the northbound No. 2 and No. 5 trains at 149th Street – Grand Concourse around 2:40 p.m. Wednesday when another woman walked into her, police said.
That sparked a quarrel that led to a beating — with the alleged bumper and a baby-faced suspect repeatedly punching the victim in the face and body, authorities said.
The woman also hit the victim in the face with a cellphone, causing pain, bruising and swelling, officers said.
The duo — visible in clear surveillance footage released by New York police — fled on foot, police said.
The victim refused to receive medical treatment at the scene.
Cops believe the suspect is between 14 and 16 years old.
He was last seen wearing a black hoodie and a red school bag.
The attacker would be aged 30 to 35 and would have a medium complexion, the police said.
She was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and tight black shorts.
