Without uttering a word, police said, the unidentified man whipped out a double-claw hammer and began bludgeoning a 20-year-old man who was dozing off in his seat.
When the beating was finished and the suspect fled with the little boy, the victim staggered back onto the train, bloodied, confused and alone, said Detective Kenneth Roach, of Central Detectives.
And even then, no one tried to help him.
"Somebody should have helped this guy," Roach said. "I understand the [other] guy had a hammer, but they outnumbered him at least 10 to one."
Miraculously, the victim took the subway up to Temple University Hospital, received several staples and sutures and was discharged, Roach said.

I just saw this story and video on my local news. They said it was most likely gang related. Very sad that a child had to see this.

With the economy in the dumps, perhaps there is a game being played where people would rather get into jail to at least receive the basics. If they run off, maybe they felt what they just did wasn't such a good idea.
