NEW YORK — A New York City man tried to hijack a 5 train with a screwdriver before passengers came to the train conductor’s defense.
The conductor, Daryl George, struggled with the man while other passengers tried to keep him off.
The New York Daily News reports:
“He said, ‘Move the train or I’m going to f—–g kill you,’” George added. “He wouldn’t let me open the door. He pulled a screwdriver and tried to stab me
“I started to move the train slowly,” George added. “He pulled my hand off and pushed the control to make the train go faster. I told him, ‘If we keep moving at this speed, we’re going to hit something.’ It didn’t make any difference to him. “
