2 Men Kicked, Hit With Hammer On Queens-Bound J Train, Police Say

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A 30-year-old man and his 53-year-old friend were attacked on a Queens-bound J train Friday night, police say.

As the train approached Bowery Station around 9 p.m., the older man asked a stranger to move over, and he did, according to authorities.

That’s apparently when an argument turned into a fight.

One of the suspects is accused of kicking the older man in the head and chest, while another suspect allegedly pulled out a hammer and hit the younger man in the head and face.

Police said the victims are expected to be OK.

  1. NYC needs to ban hammers along with guns and knives. Because bans work so well.
