As the Asian man stands silently next to a door, the other man grabs a bottle of Febreze he appears to have been carrying in a laundry bag, and begins spraying it at the victim.
‘Move! I asked you nicely,’ he says.
A second video, which appears to have been shot just moments after the first one, shows the Asian man confronting the subway sprayer.
‘Why is that? Why can’t I sit next to you?’ the victim yells. A woman pulls him aside as the assailant repeatedly tells him ‘You better move – you’re being dumb right now. You’re being dumb.’
Police responded to a 911 call about the incident but the train had left the station.
