New York City Transit president Andy Byford said he was 'disgusted' after learning of the incident and said further actions would be taken against the perpetrators.

'It is absolutely unacceptable, and we are working closely with NYPD to make certain the perpetrators are identified, arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,' Byford said.

'We're also collaborating with TWU Local 100 on ways to combat assaults, including discussing a potential pilot program for body cams.'
