A man has been detained in the vicious subway mugging of a 56-year-old woman that was caught on video.

According to the New York Post, cops have arrested Aiden Folan, 21, in connection to the brutal mugging.

The attack happened March 9th at about 2:40 a.m. at an F train station in Brooklyn. Video and details here.

Police were able to track down Folan through Facebook, where he can be seen wearing the same black hoodie with Alpha Phi Delta on the front and his nickname “Stugotz 27” on the back in many pictures.

Folan says on his Facebook page that he is an Alpha Phi Delta “historian” and that he currently works as a child counselor at the Center for Family Life in Sunset Park.

Charges are pending, police say.
