A 65-year-old man was pummeled by a stranger on a Manhattan train this week, cops said.
The victim, who boarded a northbound R train at 8th Street-NYU, was confronted by a fellow straphanger as the train approached the 23rd Street Station around 6:30 p.m. Thursday, police said.
“Why the f–k are you standing there?” the man snarled, according to cops.
A dispute ensued, and turned violent when the suspect suddenly punched the victim multiple times, police said.
The victim fell to the ground, banging his head on the train car door.
The suspect bolted from the train at 23rd Street, and the victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition, police said.
