NYC: Disturbing video shows man abusing young sons in Bronx train station

A man was caught on video last week abusing his two young sons in a Bronx subway station — and police said Thursday he’s now the focus of an NYPD probe.

The clip shows a 35-year-old man sitting between his two sons, 7 and 9, on a bench at the Fordham Road/Jerome Avenue subway station around 9 p.m. Friday. He yells at both children — punching one twice and grabbing and shaking the other around by the hair. 

Community advocate Tony Herbert posted the disturbing video to Facebook Wednesday, and said in a later post that the man who initially filmed it — who was on his way to pick up his own son from chemotherapy treatment — filed a report with the police.

Police are investigating an “open complaint” about the dad, who has a history of domestic violence incidents involving his kids, authorities said Thursday.
