NYPD looking for cop-hating vandals who damaged Upper West Side subway station
Police released photos of two masked suspects they said wreaked havoc on a Manhattan subway station as part of anti-cop protests around the city last week.
The suspects allegedly vandalized the 96th Street B and C subways on the Upper West Side around 4:24 a.m. Friday, police said.
The pair allegedly poured glue inside the MetroCard readers of three turnstiles and chained the emergency service door open –– allowing straphangers to enter free of charge, police added.
The two also placed large stickers throughout the subway station and then fled, police added.
Several other subway stations throughout the city along were marked with anti-cop graffiti and glue during Friday’s protests.
The protests were organized by the radical group Decolonize This Place, which calls for a police-free transit system in New York City.
The opposition comes as the MTA and NYPD strengthen police presence on subways and buses to resolve fare evasion, sex crimes and attacks on transit workers.
More than a dozen arrests were made following the protests.
