Sonny Alloway Wiki
Sonny Alloway, 48, allegedly pulled a young woman from a number 6 train on Morrison-Soundview / Westchester Ave. around 2:30 a.m. Monday, police said.
Sonny Alloway Video Footage
A cell phone video taken by a colleague shows Alloway trying to talk to the young woman while sitting next to her sleeping partner. Horrible images have emerged of an attempted kidnapping that took place on an underground train in New York City in the Bronx.
A spectator filmed him first trying to talk to the unidentified woman while he slept with his face covered, then grabbed her and ran off the train with her when he was at a stop at the Morrison Avenue-Soundview station. Once on the platform, Alloway seemed to lose value. He released the woman and she broke free, running back to the train with the help of another passenger. In the video, the woman, whose age and name have not been revealed, seemed to be trying to sleep when she started talking to her. It is not clear if she is homeless. She was sitting in the subway with a scarf covering her face, trying to ignore it, while he spoke to her. In a sudden movement, once the train had stopped, Alloway jumped out of his seat, picked it up and pulled his light figure from the train. She kicked and fought him. Once on the platform, he let her go and sat on a bench as if nothing had happened, before leaving the station. A second video that is believed was recorded hours after the kidnapping shows Alloway, in a different jacket, receiving a dose of street justice.
