Toronto police say subway riders who failed to intervene as a 79-year-old man was robbed by a pair of young men can still redeem themselves by coming forward now to report what they saw. (…)
The victim, who Const. Drummond described as “spry,” attempted to activate the Passenger Assistance Alarm, but could not reach it. The two men, both described only as black men in their 20s wearing all-black clothing, grabbed the man and took his wallet.
Although the man yelled for help, and “more than a handful” of people were on the subway car, no one intervened, said Const. Drummond.
Who would promptly fly up here and call those who did confront them “racists.”
