A racist manspreader assaulted a woman on the subway because she asked him to give her a bit more room to sit down, police said Saturday.
The 34-year-old victim was seated inside a northbound E train on Tuesday at around 5: 10 pm when the man sat down, partially on top of her, police said.
When she asked him to move for a moment so she could readjust herself, he shouted: “Just because you’re African American, you think you can go on your Kanye West rant, you black b***h,” according to cops, who have released an image of the suspect.
Later, as the woman was preparing to exit the train, she bumped his bag, prompting him to spit on the back of her head, said police.
The matter escalated even further when both passengers left at the 7th Avenue stop in Manhattan. When she grabbed the man’s backpack to confront him, he punched her in the shoulder and spit in her face again, and then fled back onto the train, police said.
Police describe the man as white-Hispanic, in his 30s, and approximately 5-foot-9 and 150 pounds.
