A homeless man who tried to abduct a sleeping woman off the 6 train in NYC was caught on the street and savagely beaten by a mob.

Sonny Alloway, 48, was arrested after a viral video showed him picking up the sleeping woman and dragging her off the 6 train at 2:30 a.m. on Monday.

The woman and a male friend, also homeless, were sleeping on the train to stay warm. Alloway, who was seated across from them, tapped the woman's leg and motioned toward the door.

When she ignored him, he grabbed her and carried her off the train at the next stop. Once on the platform, the woman struggled and broke free.

The woman spotted Alloway on the street the next day, and a mob delivered some street justice before the police were called.
