Over the weekend social media was livid when a hard to watch video of a man brutally kicking an elderly woman on a subway train made the rounds. While no one was able to put hands on the offender, police have indeed put handcuffs on him.
Buzzfeed is reporting that the New York City police department has placed 36-year-old Marc Gomez under arrest for the assault of the 78-year-old woman on the No. 2 train this past March 10. In the disturbing video, the “man” is seen viciously kicking the defenseless elderly woman all over her head and body while passengers screamed at him to stop.
Sadly nobody attempted to stop him or intervene at all. The video was so disturbing that even Ice-T took to social media to call out the attacker and everyone on that train for not doing anything to stop him.
Police Chief Shae tweeted that Gomez had been apprehended and thanked everyone involved in his capture.
Gomez has been charged with two counts of second-degree assault, one count of third-degree assault, and one count of harassment. Hopefully he gets more time than Paul Manafort.
