A 78-year-old woman who was not only violently attacked on a NYC subway, but unassisted by onlookers, is finally seeing justice done.
National outrage over witnesses failing to intervene but instead recording the attack have started to abate after investigators apprehended the filmed suspect.
36-year-old Marc Gomez was arrested in Lower Manhattan by the NYPD. The New York Times reports that an anonymous tip led to Gomez’s identification and apprehension.
That “anonymous tip” likely stemmed from Gomez being captured delivering the assault on a video that’s been viewed tens of millions of times. At one point the victim even acknowledges his actions turning to recording passengers and stating, “WorldStar that.”
After being treated and released from the hospital, hopefully it will be of some comfort to the victim to know that her assailant will be in jail until he can post a $30,000 bail.
