A man was arrested on Monday and charged with forcible touching, menacing and harassment after he approached a woman unprovoked in a New York City subway station and assaulted her with human feces.
The man, Frank Abrokwa, 37, is accused of attacking the woman at random while she was sitting on a bench in the E. 241st Street Bronx subway station. Surveillance video shows the man coming up to her and hitting her on the back of her head and in her face, smearing her with human feces. He then runs away.
Abrokwa appeared in court on Wednesday for his arraignment hearing. He cursed at the judge and urged the court to hurry his hearing along. He has allegedly been arrested 44 times before, and has been accused of punching people in subway stations and other random acts of violence, according to The Daily Mail.
The most recent attack, which took place on February 21, came only days after Mayor Eric Adams announced a new law enforcement task force to crack down on subway crimes.
