Moment woman was attacked in train station by homeless man who killed his nan

CCTV footage captured the moment a woman was savagely attacked at a train station allegedly by a man who killed his own nan when he was just 14 years old.

A clip taken from cameras inside a Queens subway station in New York last week allegedly shows the now 41-year-old suspect Waheed Foster slamming a woman, now identified as Elizabeth Gomes, to the floor before stamping on her and punching her in the head.

Passers-by were seen attempting to intervene but he said to have chased them off and continued his attack just after 5am on September 20.

The 33-year-old victim was trying to exit the northbound A train at the Howard Beach stop without engaging with the man, police claim.

Elizabeth claims she heard him "talking about the devil" and "a whole bunch of nonsense" during the assault and she is still struggling to sleep due to the pain of her injuries.

Judge Denise Johnson ordered Foster be held without bail during his arraignment as he reportedly has a lengthy criminal history, including the murder of his gran in 1995 when he was just a teenager.

His nan Ariela Mascha was brutally beaten to death and had 20 broken ribs, a stab wound to the leg and a punctured liver following a fight about money, reports from the time state.

Foster was also arrested in 2010 for stabbing a 50-year-old woman in the cheek and shoulder at a mental institution where he punched two other people and was out on parole until 2024.

However, he also has prior arrests for assaulting a woman with a screwdriver, criminal mischief, robbery and larceny, and in 2004 he attempted to escape from a transport vehicle while he was a state prison inmate.

Reports from the New York Post also say Foster has two other pending criminal matters on charges of criminal mischief and minor theft.
