A man has been killed after his clothes got caught in a subway car that dragged him onto the tracks in front of an oncoming train in New York.

The 20-year-old’s death comes on Monday three days after David Martin, 32, was pushed in front of a train, seemingly at random, and broke his collarbone.

A former inmate named Lamale McRae, 41, was arrested for the attack.

Last week, a 26-year-old man suffered a leg injury when he was pushed in front of a train, again apparently at random.
A homeless man, suspected of having assaulted him, was arrested.

Violence in the city’s subways has left New Yorkers on edge due to a rise in crime in the Big Apple.

State Governor Kathy Hochul, who is up for re-election in three weeks, and New York City Mayor Eric Adams has both announced plans to increase the number of police officers patrolling the subway.

“We’re all fighting for our city, but there’s still work to be done. That’s why we’re investing in mental health services, more subway workers and more affordable housing,” said Adams, who was criticized for his response to the subway attacks, he said on Twitter on Sunday.

In January, Michelle Go, 40, died after being pushed in front of a train in Times Square.
His killing was seen as part of a wave of anti-Asian attacks in American cities.

In April, a gunman threw smoke bombs and opened fire on a subway train, injuring more than 20 people. A suspect was arrested the next day.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has announced that it will install cameras in all New York City subway cars.
