“Anthony has been a model employee who was viciously attacked while attempting to help fellow New Yorkers who were being harassed by an emotionally disturbed person outside Pelham Park Station. We are wishing him a speedy recovery and urge the Bronx District Attorney to prosecute this unprovoked crime to the fullest extent. Someone with dozens of priors should not be free to harass subway riders and brutally attack the employees who make this city move. This reprehensible conduct has to end now.”
