NYPD investigators have released pictures of two men they say vandalized a subway station during a citywide protest last week. On Friday, police arrested more than a dozen protesters. Investigators say the two men in the new surveillance pictures were part of a criminal effort to vandalize the MTA subway system during that protest.
Vandals poured glue in Metrocard readers and propped open an emergency gate at the 96h Street B/C station so people could ride for free. They spray painted some of those new OMNY payment systems, leaving it to MTA workers to clean up. They also set a trash can on fire and broke windows outside the station at 96h Street. Police say the suspects seen in the photos were part of a larger group of protesters who were demanding free subway rides and fewer police in subway stations.
