‘His day is coming, that’s it, you don’t just go around hurting people, we’re all human beings, we’re all supposed to take care of each other just like the animals take care of each other,’ Martin said.

‘You watch the pride, the lion pride, everybody has their job, everybody is different, different race, different color, but that’s what makes us special.

‘You hurt an elder…I hope the police catch up with him, that’s all I have to say,’ Martin added.

Colleagues at the parking garage where he works said he is the ‘perfect guy’.

‘It is horrible, for a man his age. Working all day long, trying to go home with his family. [sig] mind his own business – and to get pushed on the train.’

Crawford is reported to have landed on his back and neck when he was shoved onto the tracks.
