Some crazy things go down in the New York subway. On Tuesday, one man had a portion of his bottom lip bit off in a confrontation with another man in a Brooklyn subway station.
Police claim that an argument began when one man began bothering on a woman on the train. Another man took offense and began arguing with the commuter as they were heading into the Crown Heights/Utica Ave. station.
After getting off the train, the two men were recorded physically fighting. The taller of the two men, who became irritated, shoves a much shorter man against a MetroCard machine. The shorter man swings and lands a blow before the taller man latches close and bites his enemy.
Onlookers can be heard yelling, "he's biting him" as the men break apart and blood starts to pour. The fight continues for another 30 seconds before the biter runs upstairs to the street, while the victim bleeds on the subway tile and walks around stunned.
He was taken to Kings County Hospital and is in stable condition. Police are on the hunt for the biter, who they describe as being black, age 35 to 45, 5 feet 11 inches, 170 pounds, and bald.
