Homeless Man Charged In Subway Attack
July 08, 2006
A homeless man has been charged with slashing another homeless man on a subway train.
Police say 41-year-old Randy Johns slashed a 46-year-old man onboard an uptown 2 train Friday afternoon.
Police say the two men got into an argument, then Johns slashed his victim across the right side of his face and then fled.
Police arrested Johns at the 14th Street and 6th Avenue subway station a little later.
The victim was treated and released from St. Vincent's.
Johns also faces charges of criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Meanwhile, the man charged with attacking a postal worker in a Manhattan subway station has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric examination.
Tareyton Williams, 33, was arrested a couple hours after the attack after he allegedly punched someone a few blocks away. He now faces attempted murder, robbery and weapons charges in connection with the attack.
Police say Williams grabbed two portable power saws from a work site Thursday in the Cathedral Parkway station and attacked Michael Steinberg. Steinberg says he thought Williams was trying to cut through him. Steinberg suffered punctures to his chest and lungs, but is expected to recover.
The attack comes just weeks after a Boston man was charged with stabbing four people over a 13-hour span in the subway and theater district. Kenny Alexis is charged with four counts of attempted murder. Three of the victims were tourists.
