A 69-year-old woman has been put into a medically-induced coma after she was brutally beaten on the L train this month. Police say that victim Gladys Castro was attacked on a Manhattan-bound L train near the E. 105th Street stop in Canarsie about 9:50 p.m. on May 21st. According to the News, she was attacked by 28-year-old Dhamma Etomi, who has been charged with attempted murder and assault.

The News claims the attack was seemingly random: "She screamed for help before the suspect knocked her out, a complaint against Etomi stated. At one point, Etomi unzipped his pants and knelt down in front of Castro’s face." Castro suffered bleeding in her brain, prompting doctors to put her into the coma. Her family told them she is "not doing well" at Brookdale University Hospital.

Etomi has been sent to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. He was previously charged with assault as a hate crime after he confessed to beating a man with a cane in a Manhattan homeless shelter bathroom in 2012 because he thought the man was gay. He was released from jail in November 2013, and placed into a mental hospital.
