Police have arrested a man accused of attacking a stranger on a subway platform.

Authorities say 32-year-old Joseph Owens was standing on the uptown platform of the No. 6 train at 77th Street last month when he got in what witnesses describe as a staredown with a man on the other platform.

He allegedly walked across the tracks and punched the man in the face several times.

Now, he's charged with assault and reckless endangerment.
