NY Robbery Suspect Fleeing Police Gets Struck by Train

NY Robbery Suspect Fleeing Police Gets Struck by Train

NEW YORK CITY – A knife-wielding robbery suspect tried to flee police in a lower Manhattan subway station by leaping onto a moving train – but ended up falling under its wheels, officials said.

Bryan Feeley, 20, was trying to escape cops after he committed a knifepoint robbery on Reade St. at 1:40 a.m. Thursday, according to cops and transit officials.

Feeley held up a 32-year-old man and ran off with cash, but the victim followed him and called 911, police said.

Minutes later, cops from the 1st Precinct met the victim, who said the man who robbed him had just dashed down the steps of the Chambers St./World Trade Center station, police said.

Officers followed Feeley and ordered him to stop but the suspect sprinted down the platform, police said.

The cops halted one train pulling into the station, but the suspect then tried to hop onto a moving E train that was just leaving, police said.

Investigators believe Feeley slipped as he tried to leap into the space between cars – and fell under the train.

Feeley died at New York Downtown Hospital a short time later, officials said.

Investigators believe Feeley also unsuccessfully tried to rob a 20-year-old man on Beekman St. about 45 minutes before he died.

But police sources said Feeley – who lived in Broad Channel, Queens – had been arrested several times for robbery and fare beating.

The incident caused E train service to be suspended in both directions for three hours and 40 minutes, according to MTA spokesman Charlie Seaton.

    I just hope that circumstances in his life didn't send him to hell. I hope he had the chance to repent of his sins before he passed. Bad times can cause good people to do bad things.
