NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Police are looking for two out-of-control New York City subway riders they say punched a conductor in the face after he announced a train was going express.

It happened shortly after 4:30 a.m. Saturday at the Grant Avenue station in Brooklyn. The transit workers union, TWU Local 100, says the conductor announced that his A train would be making express stops, and then a man approached the conductors booth window and started yelling at him and throwing punches.
