The Bronx man who attacked the husband of a woman who spit on him on the subway has been arrested (video below).
Patrick Crow, 34, was arrested on Jan. 27 after telling the New York Daily News he was going to turn himself in.
A bystander captured video of the Jan. 20 attack between Crow and 33-year-old Queen Muhammad’s husband, and it has gone viral since it was posted online, reported New York Daily News.
According to police, the argument started in Manhattan when Muhammad tried to squeeze into a seat on the subway next to reflective vest-wearing Crow. He allegedly elbowed her and she elbowed him back, and that resulted in a tirade between the two that lasted all the way to the Bronx, the New York Post reported.
The expletive-laden argument intensified between Crow and Muhammad. At one point, Muhammad held the doors of the train open to call for help, annoying other passengers who were on their way home.
The woman’s husband urged her to stop.
“Yo, chill,” Tesfa Walters said.
Muhammad spit on Crow and things turned violent toward Walters.
Crow attacked him, beating him with his fists repeatedly as the man lay on the floor of the subway car. He also kicked him in the head.
“I can’t f— you up, so I f—-d your man up,” Crow said, according to New York Daily News.
Walters would not comment on Crow’s arrest.
“I have to speak to my wife about everything,” he told the New York Daily News.
According to an in-law of Muhammad's, she is mentally ill.
"She's beating everybody up all the time," Walters's aunt said, reported New York Daily News. "She fights everybody."
Crow faces charges of misdemeanor assault, harassment, and menacing. He pleaded not guilty and was released without bail.
He is being represented by a Legal Aid lawyer.
