Joe Lozito is a regular rider of the 3 train. It's his ride to work. He has a favorite seat
On February 12, 2011, he got on the train at 34th St-Penn Station. Lozito prefers the first car.
As the train headed to Times Square, he noticed a man knocking on the train operator's door.
He did not know that man was the suspect who was wanted in a citywide manhunt after 4 people were killed in Brooklyn.
NYPD officers were watching the subway because the suspect was rumored to be hiding on trains. There were officers on the train. Lozito was stabbed in the head as he fought off the suspect.
Each act of violence on the subway reminds him of what happened and what can happen.
