A woman who took a bite out of another passenger in a dispute over a seat on a crowded subway was being sought for assault on Friday, the New York City police said. The attack occurred on a Manhattan-bound "F" train from Queens a week earlier, when a 45-year-old woman asked the suspect to remove her belongings from a seat so she could sit, said Lieutenant Thomas Antonetti, spokesman for the New York Police Department. "The suspect became enraged pushing the victim, scratching her on the chest, pulling her hair and biting her on her forearm causing a laceration and bleeding," the NYPD said in a statement.
OCALA, Fla. (AP) — A 58-year-old Florida man says he has no regrets for interfering to stop his neighbor from beating a woman even though he was stabbed in the scuffle and the blade missed his heart by only half an inch.
