Nina Rothchild, a 58-year-old scientist at the New York City Health Department, endured a horrifying attack at a Queens subway station when she was violently assaulted by an ex-convict wielding a hammer, Your Content has learned.

The incident, which included being pushed down the stairs and struck in the head 13 times, has left Rothchild traumatized and fearful for her safety.

She attributes the surge in such harrowing crimes to the state’s lenient bail reforms and now dreads using the subway for her daily commute.

The assailant, identified as William Blount, 57, has been charged with attempted murder, robbery, and assault in connection with the botched robbery.

Despite more than a month passing since the attack, Rothchild continues to suffer from the physical and emotional aftermath, struggling to overcome the trauma inflicted upon her.

Her experience has reinforced her belief that New York’s bail reform laws need to be revisited, as they currently enable criminals to walk free without bail.

Rothchild’s plea for change highlights the urgent need to address the growing concerns surrounding the safety of New York City’s subway system, which has become plagued by rampant criminal activity, according to The Daily Advent.
