A Bronx woman was recently arrested for bashing a Metro-North conductor in the face with a pumpkin after being asked to leave the train. The conductor had told Adams to get off at the next stop because Adams didn’t show a ticket when asked, the DA said.
Alexis Adams, 21, attacked the conductor on Oct. 11 at around 6 p.m. Adams reportedly hit the conductor in the head with the pumpkin and unloaded multiple punches on her face and head, according to the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.
The conductor was transported to a local hospital where she received medical treatment for her injuries, including multiple stitches.
Adams was charged with two counts of second degree assault and a warrant was issued for her arrest. She was arrested by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Police, who led the investigation, and was arraigned in Mount Vernon City Court on Oct. 28.
Adams is expected to return to court on November 10.
