NEW YORK (77WABC) — The Guardian Angels pounced on a subway rider who was assaulting an elderly woman in the Bronx on Saturday — this according to founder and 77WABC host Curtis Sliwa.

The incident happened about noon on a D train at 167th Street, when three Guardian Angels saw a man and woman yelling at the elderly straphanger. Sliwa said NYPD officers — who were at the station — arrested the man, who was released on a desk appearance ticket.

Sliwa added that the same trio of Guardian Angels about an hour earlier Saturday saw an emotionally disturbed man holding a baby and yelling at a female passenger, who was a stranger, on board a 4 train at 138th Street in the Bronx. He said the Angels escorted the woman to another car.
