I just called the precinct but the gentleman didn't seem terribly interested: at around 12:15 am, a friend and I were headed up Washington Ave towards the subway at Eastern Parkway. A black man, stocky build, around 5'9", ran past us and down into the subway wearing a white shirt COVERED in blood, and it didn't seem to be his blood. we informed the MTA employee, who didn't seem to do anything. We went down to the track where the man waited on the other side of the platform and changed from his bloody shirt into a clean black shirt. The subway arrived and he got on. He got off at Atlantic Avenue. Is there anything more I can do? If the MTA has cameras, this man would DEFINITELY be on camera sometime between 12 and 12:30.
