Read Time:2 Minute, 49 Second
New York City (WABC)-the police are investigating another case of violence in the New York City transportation system-at the same time, officials are urging passengers to stay vigilant in the face of rising subway crime.

“The more people who ride bicycles, the more people are victims,” ​​said Lisa Daglian of the MTA’s Permanent Citizenship Advisory Committee. “So don’t be a victim. Pay attention to where you are going as much as possible, make sure your eyes are not buried in your phone and look around. Pay attention to your surroundings.”

On Monday night, a 23-year-old man was hospitalized after a fight at the MTA station in Chelsea.

The victim was hit in the head by a bottle on the southbound platform of the No. 1 train at 11:40 p.m.

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital. No one was arrested.

At the MTA board meeting earlier on Monday, an inspector from the New York Police Department stated that the crime rate of the transportation system is rising due to a 50% increase in thefts.

The police said that many of the victims were asleep or did not pay attention.

But robberies are also increasing-an increase of 18% compared to the same period last year, as the number of passengers has doubled.

Crime trends are a topic of discussion among board members.

“I think these are crimes of opportunity,” said Andrew Albert, a board member. “When I ride a bike, I am not scared at all. I will tell everyone the same thing: When you ride a bike, know who is by your side.”

Officials did say that the crime rate has declined throughout the year.

But as the number of passengers increased this fall, crime trends have also increased.
