Cops Name Suspect In Subway Hammer Attacks (Anthony Coward)

Police have released the name of the man they believe has attacked at least three people with a hammer in New York City subway stations.

The suspect is Anthony Coward, 28, police said. He is described as a 28-year-old black man with black hair and brown eyes, standing 6 feet, 1 inch tall and weighing about 160 pounds.

On Wednesday, Coward allegedly attacked 32-year-old Richianand Brijanand, of Ozone Park, with a hammer and robbed him as the victim tried to buy a Metro Card at the Fulton Street and Rockaway Avenue station in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

Anthony Coward is wanted by police in connection with three hammer attacks and robberies.

Brijanand told CBS 2′s John Slattery he was lucky the hammer blow to his head wasn’t more serious.

“I’m feeling, like, swelling — a lot of swelling,” Brijanand said Thursday. “It swells from here, all the way up here, to the bottom here.” He pointed to his right ear, his right temple and the side of his right eye.

“I went up to the machine trying to make my purchase, and all of a sudden he just hit me right in the head — boom,” Brijanand said, adding that he did not see it coming....

This low IQ Yute probably doesn’t even realize how incredibly easy it is to kill someone with a hammer blow to the head. His victims (and him also) are VERY fortunate.

This creature needs to be found quickly and put away from people.

Aptly surnamed in my opinion.

Was he wearing balloon plants and shuffling from side to side during each assault?

I don't think this animal gives a rats ass about his victims and whether they live or die. Let's hope he meets rapidly moving piece of lead wrapped in copper for a late term abortion real soon.

roughly 10x more people are murdered with blunt weapons like hammers anually than with assault weapons. maybe new york should ban hammers instead of assault weapons.

For example, in 2011, there was 323 murders committed with a rifle (of any kind) but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs.

In China it would get a speedy criminal trial, then be bound, dragged out to a hole by the hair, and shot. And it would be exactly what it deserved.

This is todays version of a Wanted Poster. I’m glad people are being warned. Some dumbell is helping to hide and feed this animal. The animal needs to be put down and I don’t say that lightly. He has made himself into the peoples enemy.

Agreed, but like with Carlos Danger, it makes me ashamed to be named Anthony.

All hammers should be registered, and their owners subject to a background check.

They didn’t pick no cotton up there; they stole it from the south.

“And the “Knockout Game” gets an upgrade...”

The good ol’ Dinkins days are back. I love these stories because they confirm everything I believe about NYC; these aren’t horror stories from the ‘70s, but current events.

NYC is a cesspool of crime mostly perpetrated by unassimilated minorities.

This low IQ Yute...

That is the basic problem with black criminality; almost all of them have low IQs and are not capable of attaining and keeping jobs. And, of course, they pass on these genes for stupidity by breeding like lab rats, making the problem exponentially worse.

I’ve come to expect it from any violent crime being posted these days.

I know your post was sarcasm BTW....
