NBC- Police are looking for a subway rider who yelled there was a bomb aboard the L train in Brooklyn Saturday evening, just hours before an actual bomb exploded in Manhattan, wounding 31. The man boarded the Manhattan-bound train at Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg at about 5:45 p.m. and yelled out “bomb,” according to police, citing witnesses.
He began to count down from five, then yelled out “boom,” police said. A passenger took a photo of the suspect with her cellphone before she got off at the First Avenue stop in Manhattan. The suspect is described as about 30 to 40 years old and about 5 feet 10 inches tall. Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
Anybody that yells bomb in a crowded place like the subway, airplane, or basically anywhere in New York City is a Grade-A asshole. But to then count down from five and yell “BOOM” is certifiable shit. How this dude was able to walk off the train kinda scares me a little to be honest. I almost expect New Yorkers braver than I to knock a guy like this out and tear him limb from limb. My girl Deanna Carter wouldn’t have let this idiot pull a stunt like this without getting her two cents in.
And yes, I know I said this morning that pie’ing someone in the face is fucked up. But this dude should be pied in the face every hour on the hour along with a steady diet of knuckle sandwiches in the clink if/when the NYPD finds him. Just an unreal asshole move.
