In a shocking incident on Nov. 11, Marquise Webb of Yonkers and Brian Innocent of New Rochelle, were arrested for allegedly assaulting an on-duty NYPD lieutenant on a Bronx subway. The attack unfolded at the 238th Street station after 9 p.m., following officers’ orders to exit the subway car.
The incident began when police responded to reports of a fight involving a knife at the Kingsbridge 1 train station. However, one of the groups involved had already left by the time officers arrived. It was after this that Webb and Innocent allegedly assaulted the lieutenant after being ordered to leave the subway car.
The lieutenant, attempting to fend off the attackers, sustained cuts and bruising to his eye. Despite the assault, he was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition.
As the attackers fled onto the train tracks, police, including the injured lieutenant, pursued them with tasers drawn. Authorities later apprehended the suspects, recovering a knife, box cutter, and straight razor during the arrests.
Webb and Innocent now face a slew of charges, including assault on a police officer, criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, obstruction of governmental administration, criminal trespassing, and disorderly conduct, according to the NYPD.
