NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- This week's MTA Hero helped stop subway customers from being intimidated and scammed.
Station Supervisor Sabuj Shill didn't hesitate when he saw something fishy.
He was working at the 23rd Street F station when he saw a panhandler holding the gate open and charging people to go through.
He called the MetroCard Fraud Task Force and that eventually led to the panhandler's arrest.
The MTA says Shill's actions went above and beyond his day-to-day duties.
The NYC Pride March broadcast special, co-hosted by Angelica Ross along with WABC's Ken Rosato, Lauren Glassberg and Sam Champion, will return for its sixth consecutive year on ABC 7 from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET on Sunday, June 26 as well on abc7NY.com, ABC News Live, and ABC7 New York's Connected TV Apps on streaming platforms Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku.
