Cops busted this bully.

Authorities on Thursday arrested a man suspected of slugging a kid while riding a G train last month.

The 5-year-old boy and his mother were aboard a Church Avenue–bound Brooklyn Local on March 25 when the 25-year-old punched the youngster in the face as it pulled into Bergen Street station, authorities said.

The suspect then allegedly taunted the tot before hopping off the train at the Boerum Hill hub, yelling “Are you going to cry to your mommy?” according to a New York Post report that a police spokesman said he couldn’t confirm at the time.

The youngster, who sustained bruising and swelling on the left side of his face, sought treatment at New York University Langone Hospital in Cobble Hill following the attack.

This guy's racism fills up the comments whenever there is a black person involved in the story.

Are there possibly any biological connections,between,the mother,the 5-year old child;and the 25-year-old man? It's hard to imagine,all but,a most emotionally-disturbed,25-year-old;randomly punching,a 5-year-old child. Of course,regardless,it is always unconsionable bullying;for an adults to punch little children.
