Woman brutally beaten in NYC subway by killer of his own GRANDMOTHER says police nowhere ‘to be found’

A New York City woman could lose sight in one eye after being brutally beaten by a convicted murderer with a rap sheet a mile long, out on parole with charges pending in other incidents.

Waheed Foster, 41, who was convicted in 1995 for brutally beating his grandmother to death, allegedly chased Elizabeth Gomes, 33, from her train, dragged her across the Queens subway platform, threw her into a wall, and repeatedly kicked her in the head and body, according to surveillance footage.

“Gomes had gotten off the A train and was on her way to Kennedy Airport, where she works as a security guard, before the sickening 5:15 a.m. assault,” the New York Post reported. “She was trying to avoid Foster — who was ranting about Satan — but he went after her.”

The beating was so intense, Gomes’ pupil was outside of her eye, according to Gomes’ husband Clement Tucker.

“Man, I watched the video, and it tears my heart out of me,” he said.

A native New Yorker, Gomes can’t believe she’s in this position because a repeat offender allegedly with a grudge against women was free on the street.

“Do you know how scared I am now? I was never a person to be scared,” she said.

Both Gomes and Tucker question the failed law enforcement policies that allowed a convicted murderer and violent, repeat offender to be on the street, free to perpetrate this sick, violent attack.

“This guy kill his grandmother at 14 years old,” Tucker said. “He injured so many people. Why is he on the street? That’s what we trying to find out. It’s crazy — she’s going to lose her sight if she doesn’t get some help real soon.”

Along with the brutal killing of his grandmother, where Ariela Mascha suffered 20 broken ribs, a stab wound in the leg and a punctured liver, Foster stabbed his sister with a screwdriver in 2010. During his inpatient treatment for attacking his sister, Foster was arrested for attacking three workers at the Creedmore Psychiatric Center, ABC7 reported.

He was also arrested in 2010 for stabbing a 50-year-old woman in the cheek and shoulder and has a total of seven prior arrests, including criminal mischief, robbery and larceny, the New York Post reported.

On parole until November 2024 at the time of last week’s attack, Foster has pending charges for criminal mischief and minor theft.

“Honestly, being a New Yorker, we hear these things all the time. We try to avoid it, you know?” Gomes said. “And it’s just so sad that even though we try to avoid it, these things still happen to us. I still can’t put that day together. I don’t even know.”

Reportedly suffering from extreme headaches and insomnia, Gomes’ said she is now terrified of the subway.

“Every day is an incident in the subway,” she told ABC7. “What happened to all these police officer they said they will have there to protect us? There’s like nobody to be found. I don’t understand.”
