The graphic video, which was used as a call-to-action on social media, showed the man kicking the woman in the face twice, then in the body four more times.
No one in the video appeared to have intervened in the assault. Police said following the attack, the man fled the train while the victim rode one more stop before being met by emergency services to treat her injuries. She refused further medical treatment after she suffered injuries such as bleeding, swelling and cuts to her face.
