Police are investigating a man who allegedly dumped rubbish on a subway track in Manhattan on Sunday morning, causing a train derailment, disrupting hours of service, but causing no serious injuries. This weird attack disrupted services on several lines, where work is on full swing to get back to normalcy by Monday morning, police said. Demetrius Harvard, 30, of the Bronx was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, assault and criminal trespass. "All passengers on the train got off safely at the station".

Photos from the scene show damage to the front of the train, where it appears to have struck several beams in the station. On noticing this, Good Samaritans held him at the station until cops took him into custody.

"At this time, the cause of the incident appears to be an act of vandalism", she said in a statement.

A Bronx man has been charged with criminal mischief after metal clamps were thrown on to NY subway tracks, causing a train to derail leaving injuring three people.

As a result of the power loss, a northbound A train is stuck in the tunnel near 34th Street, and Feinberg said MTA crews are working to remove customers from the train.

There had to do with 30 travelers on the trains. Three passengers suffered minor injuries.
