The search for a suspect who allegedly threw cans of fire at a group of people in a New York City subway station remains underway, police said.

According to the New York Police Department (NYPD), a man targeted the bystanders at the West 28th Street subway station in Manhattan on Feb. 5 at approximately 7:40 p.m. The incident was recorded and the footage was publicly released on Wednesday.

The video appears to show the suspect holding two burning cans while standing at the station’s turnstile.

Moments later, the suspect can be seen hurling the flaming cans at a group of strangers on the platform.
