Police in New York City say a woman pushed, scratched and bit a subway rider who tried to sit in a seat that had her bag on it.

The alleged subway rage occurred aboard a Manhattan-bound F train from Queens last Friday.

Police say the 45-year-old victim asked a woman to move her bag so she could sit down. When the woman ignored her, the victim attempted to sit down anyway.

That's when police say the seated women flew into a rage. They say she scratched the other rider, pulled her hair and bit her forearm, causing bleeding.

The suspect fled when the train stopped at the 21st Street and Queensbridge station in Long Island City.

The victim was taken to a hospital. The attacker remains at large.
