Teens allegedly break into subway conductor booth in Queens

QUEENS — Police said they are investigating after video surfaced purportedly of a group of teens breaking into the conductor booth of a moving subway in Queens over the weekend.

According to the NYPD, the incident show in a video spread online took place just before 5 p.m. Saturday on a No. 7 train, near the Hunters Point Avenue station in Long Island City.

The MTA said in a statement that the video had been shared with the NYPD for investigation.

In the footage, a group of young people can be seen after breaking into one of the motorman cabs of the train, police confirmed. Cops said no damage was reported to the subway car.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.

The good news is, the teens couldn't have taken control of the train, as there was already an MTA conductor in another cab. A train cannot be controlled from two operating cabs at once, transit sources told PIX11 News.
