Police have arrested a suspect in a brutal attack by a panhandler on a 2-year-old toddler on a New York City subway over a social distancing dispute.

The mother of the child told WLNY-TV that she was riding the subway on Saturday with her 2-year-old boy sleeping on her lap when a female panhandler came through the train asking for money.

When the woman came too close to the mother and her child, she asked her to stay 6 feet away, as per the social distancing guidelines.

The mother said that that woman appeared angry at the request, stepped on her foot, and then turned to attack the child. She said the panhandler punched the child 4 times before running off.

In one retelling of the story, the woman told WCBS-TV that the bystanders just watched and did not intervene while the panhandler viciously attacked her child.
