Two Hispanics among the “green” women who beat up passengers in a grotesque attack on the New York Subway; ask the governor to intervene
Two Hispanic women are part of the group of four women from the “Green Goblin” gang identified and wanted by the NYPD on suspicion of attacking and robbing passengers inside a New York Subway car.
Several attackers were caught on video dressed entirely in greensome of them masked and others with their faces uncovered. Two 19-year-old adolescents were victims of the assault and robbery around 2 am on Sunday, October 2.
Emily Soto (34) and Mairam Cisse Issouf, Ciante Alston and Dariana Peguero, all 26, are being wanted by NYPDreported New York Post. The other suspects have not yet been identified.
The four suspects already identified live in NYCHA’s Queensboro HousesNew York Police Chief of Detectives James Essig told reporters. It is not clear why they have not yet been arrested.
Peguero has the longest criminal record with nine prior arrests, followed by Alston with three, Soto with two and Issouf has been arrested once before, Essig said. The videotaped attack “originally arose from an apparent hit on the platform and spilled onto the subway car,” she added.
The victims were robbed of a cell phone and a handbag. The women who were all in neon green uniforms fled after the assault.
The mother of one of the victims told the New York Post on Monday that her daughter “said it was attacked by aliens And I didn’t know what he was talking about.”
“Yesterday was her birthday,” added the distraught mother, who asked that she and the victims remain anonymous for fear of retaliation. “That’s how he spent his 19th birthday. I hope they get what they deserve and then some because it’s disgusting.”
The furious mother suggested that the lax bail reform laws of the state, which have been criticized for creating a justice system of impunity, jeopardize the safety of law-abiding citizens.
He accused Governor Kathy Hochul and state politicians of “making these ridiculous laws and letting savages walk the streets with nothing but a slap on the wrist.”
“Watch the videos of these two girls being beaten by a gang of adult women and imagine it was your daughter, granddaughter, sister, mother or friend. Put yourself in that situation,” was the mother’s message to the governor.
Mayor Eric Adams, whose election campaign focused on public safety, has implemented several measures to make the subway safer, including deploying more police officers to stations and cars. But until now violence continues to escalate.
Yesterday three passengers were stabbed at subway stations in the Bronx, Harlem and Brooklyn, and one of them died. And earlier this week a young man was miraculously rescued after being pushed onto the tracks at Union Square Station.
