‘Are you going to cry to ya’ mommy?’: Thug taunts 5-year-old after subway attack

It doesn’t get any lower than this.
A brute slugged a 5-year-old boy out of nowhere on a subway train in Brooklyn over the weekend — then jeered, “Are you going to cry to ya’ mommy?” before fleeing, cops said Sunday.
The 5-year-old child was with his mother and brother riding a southbound G-train in Boerum Hill just before 4:30 p.m. Saturday when the stranger suddenly materialized and sucker-punched the child on the left side of the face, police said.
The grown man then taunted his tiny victim before hustling off the train when it stopped in the station.
A quick-thinking witness snapped photos of the creep, and cops released them as they urged anyone with information on the boy’s attacker to come forward.
“He was a coward and a bully. … Who does that?’’ a high-ranking police source told The Post of the suspect.
“He’s the worst coward, punching a defenseless child in the face riding the train with his mom and brother. The kid will probably never want to ride the train again.’’
Horrified parents at the subway station Sunday made sure they had copies of the creep’s mug, saying they’d be on the lookout while riding the rails with their own youngsters.
“The guy’s insane,” raged a 38-year-old dad, who only gave his first name, Andrew. “He needs to get locked up before he does something even worse to a child.”
Visibly rattled mom Anne Marie Mellon, pulling her 4-year-old son close, added, “Our kids aren’t safe anywhere, even if we’re with them. It’s too much.”
Detectives visited the victim’s Cobble Hill home Sunday and left following a brief visit. The boy’s parents declined to comment on the incident or their son’s condition.
The young victim was taken to NYU Langone Health Cobble Hill on Saturday, where he was treated and released.
Police described his attacker as approximately 20 years old, 6 feet tall and 160 pounds with a medium build. He has short black hair and a mustache.
