Jane Ferguson, a reporter for PBS News who has won several awards, reportedly stated this week that she was violently assaulted by an unknown assailant on the train in New York City.
According to Ferguson, the incident left her with her “ear ringing and face on fire.” Luckily for Ferguson a good Samaritan helped save her in the wake of the incident.
After spending more than 13 years in the Middle East as part of her profession, Ferguson, who has been recognized with honors such as the Polk, the Emmy, and the DuPont, is now headquartered in New York City.
The public transportation system in New York City, known as the subway, has garnered a reputation for being a dangerous place where brutal assaults and other crimes frequently take place.
Although it has now been claimed that there has been a decrease in crime in the subway compared to the extremely violent year of 2022, this has not prevented high-profile assaults from taking place.
In the earlier part of this year, a gang of teens viciously assaulted Fox News meteorologist Adam Klotz while he was on the train.
He said that the gang was making fun of him, and he made an effort to extricate himself from the situation.
But, the assault did not stop there, and the assailants pursued him to another subway car.
In connection with the assault, the police detained three of the juvenile suspects but did not press charges against them.
Instead, they were allowed to return home to their parents.
