On Saturday, two passengers on a New York City subway attacked the conductor after he announced the train was ordered to run express.

Jacob Credell, 62, was working on a southbound A train around 4:30 a.m. at the Grant Avenue station in Brooklyn.

Two passengers – a man and a woman – became irate and attacked the conductor through a window after the announcement, CBS New York reported.

The woman can be seen throwing punches to the conductor’s face as he and the man struggle.

The suspects fled after the attack. The NYPD is asking the public for information regarding this incident that was caught on video.

Union employees handed out wanted posters of the suspects.

TWU Local 100 Vice President Joe Costales said: “It made the next stop and that’s when this happened. It was unprovoked by the conductor, the conductor was just doing his job.”

“He’s got a little bit of a black eye and some scratches,” said Costales of the conductor, who was too shaken up to appear on camera.

The union says it’s just the latest in a string of assaults on its employees.

“Enough’s enough. We want them arrested,” said Costales.

The union is calling for surveillance cameras at every train station, as well as body cameras attached to the safety glasses workers are required to wear.
