Report via New York Post -- Marc Gomez was awaiting arraignment Saturday night for the cowardly, caught-on-cellphone violence from March 10.
Footage of the attack went viral after it was posted on social media — prompting outrage not only for its brutality, but because at least two straphangers whipped out cellphones to record the incident instead of trying to help.
The viral video shows the man attacking the 78-year-old victim as she is sitting in a northbound No. 2 train around 3 a.m. March 10, police said.
She tried to defend herself as her attacker kicked her in the face and body — while straphangers can be heard shouting in the background, but doing nothing to intervene.
As the train was stopped at Nereid Avenue, the man yells something at his victim before turning around, looking at the camera and shouting, “WorldStar that, my nigga.” — referring to the popular social media page that is filled with violent videos. He then got off the train.
