A man wielding a screwdriver and screaming someone wanted to kill him tried to hijack a subway train by forcing his way into a motorman’s cab, cops, a witness and the motorman said Monday.
The terrifying 10-minute ordeal on a crowded northbound No. 5 train happened Friday and prompted panicked passengers to rush to the conductor’s defense.
“I had some passengers helping me, so thank God for them,” said motorman Darryl George, 36. “There are still good people in New York City.”
Suspect Richard Arrocho, 42, is accused of entering George’s front-car cab by climbing through its open side window from a wall alongside the tracks near the 149th St. station in the Bronx.
