Woman Charged for Attack on Subway

A woman has been arrested after she was caught on video yelling at another woman on the subway and attacking her.

Anna Lushchinskaya, 40, is facing felony assault charges.  The video shows her yelling racist slurs at an Asian woman on the “D” train traveling through Borough Park in Brooklyn on Thursday morning.  She is also seen kicking her victim and swinging an umbrella at her.

As this is going on, fellow subway riders try to hold Lushchinskaya back and urge her to stop.  Despite that, she continues to scream profanities and go after the other woman.

The video went viral on social media.  Lushchinskaya was later arrested and charged.  The victim and another rider suffered minor injuries.
