PATH service suspension after 2 men fighting flee into tunnel
PATH suspended service on two of its lines Friday morning for an hour because of a fight onboard a train.
Spokesman Joe Pentangelo said the men in their 20s had a dispute on the train as it entered the 33rd Street Station in Manhattan. As Port Authority Police came toward them, they ran down the tracks in the tunnel towards 23rd Street Station, according to Pentangelo.
PAPD spotted the men on 6th Avenue at 23rd Street and kept running away. Pentangelo said one of the men was captured at 6th Avenue and 23rd Street while the other is still at large.
Neither the suspect nor anyone on the train were injured.
As a precaution, service was suspended for a search of the tracks. Service was restored around 11:15 a.m.
NJ Transit's Main/Bergen Line and Port Jervis lines were closed for a suspicious package found at the Ridgewood Station on Thursday morning, That turned out to be a pair of shoes with a wire sticking out.
