Wagswoofs – A group of men were approached by two New York City police officers and asked to cease smoking on a subway platform. In response, the officers were assaulted.
At approximately 2:30 p.m. on Monday, the NYPD observed two men smoking as they made their way into the Freeman Street station in the Bronx.
