A racist creep sat on a woman’s thigh on the subway, spit in her face and punched her in the shoulder, cops said.
Police nabbed the accused brute Saturday thanks to a photo the 34-year-old victim snapped as they rode an uptown E train towards the Seventh Ave. station in Midtown, police said.
Abel Adames, 38, claimed a seat next to the victim during the rush hour encounter Tuesday and wound up sitting on her thigh. She asked for a minute to readjust and scoot over – a simple request that launched the man on a crazy rant.
“Just because you’re African-American you think you can go on your Kanye West rant, b—h,” he yelled.
A few minutes later as the woman stepped off the train at the Seventh Ave. stop, Adames spat on the back of her head, police said. She grabbed his backpack to try to stop him, and he spit in her face and punched her in the shoulder, officials said. The man jumped back on the train and got away.
The victim suffered pain but refused medical attention.
