Bronx DA: Brooklyn Man Indicted For Assault & Other Charges For Tossing Urine At Subway Conductor, Bus Driver



Defendant Also Punched the Conductor

Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark today announced that a Brooklyn man has been indicted in assaults on Metropolitan Transportation Authority workers in two separate incidents in the Bronx.

District Attorney Clark said, “The defendant allegedly splashed two female MTA employees with urine, and punched one of them. These victims are a subway conductor and a bus operator who were performing their jobs transporting passengers.”

District Attorney Clark said the defendant, Brandon Jobson, 22, of Rockaway Parkway, Brooklyn, was arraigned today on second-degree Assault, Attempted Assault second degree, second-degree Aggravated Harassment, Attempted Aggravated Harassment second degree, third-degree Assault, Attempted Assault third degree, two counts of second-degree Reckless Endangerment, two counts of second-degree Harassment and two counts of Disorderly Conduct before Bronx Supreme Court Justice George Villegas. Bail was set at $10,000 cash/$10,000 bond and the defendant is due back in court on October 3, 2019.

           According to the investigation, on April 12, 2019 at 10:30 AM, at East 138th Street and Brook Avenue station of the No. 6 train, an MTA Conductor operating a train observed the defendant on the platform from the conductor window. The defendant allegedly approached the conductor window and struck the victim with a closed fist once on her head and threw a liquid substance contained in a bottle at her person. The victim believes the liquid is urine based on the odor and color of substance. The defendant fled on foot.

              According to the investigation, on April 12, 2019, at 11:25 AM, an MTA Bus Operator was driving a bus on the BX1/BX2 line and upon turning the corner of East 138th Street and Grand Concourse, she observed defendant standing across the street holding what appeared to be a cup in his hand.  The bus operator pulled up to the bus stop in front of 250 Grand Concourse to let passengers off and on the bus, and while stopped, she saw the defendant standing right outside her window throw a cup with a liquid substance which landed on her face, clothing and in her eyes. The victim believes the liquid is urine based on the odor and color of substance. The defendant fled on foot.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Tamika E. Vaughan of Trial Bureau 70, under the supervision of Jeffrey Glucksman, Chief of Trial Bureau 70, and under the overall supervision of James Brennan, Deputy Chief of the Trial Division, and Theresa Gottlieb, Chief of the Trial Division.

District Attorney Clark thanked NYPD Detective Francis Flynn of Bronx Transit Robbery Squad for his assistance in the investigation.

An indictment is an accusatory instrument and not proof of a defendant’s guilt.
