A 48-year-old man who was arrested for trying to abduct a drug-addicted woman off a subway train in The Bronx is giving his side of the story.
Sonny Alloway was arrested after a viral video showed him picking up a homeless woman and dragging her off the No. 6 train at 2:30 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 30.
He was charged with unlawful imprisonment, a misdemeanor, and released.
The woman and a male friend, also homeless, were sleeping on the train to stay warm when the incident happened.
Cell phone video shows Alloway, who was seated across from them, tap the woman’s leg and motion toward the door.
At the next stop, Alloway grabbed the frail woman and carried her off the train, as she yelled for help.
The woman and her friends spotted Alloway on the street the next day, and the mob delivered some street justice before the police were called.
In a new video released on New Year’s Day, Alloway gives his side of the story. He claims the woman is a “crackhead” who asked him to help her get away from her pimp.
Watch the video below. The second video shows the attempted abduction. In the 3rd video, Alloway is seen professing his affection for young girls.
