Swedish Cops Break Up NYC Subway Fight: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A quartet of Swedish police officers visiting New York were caught on camera breaking up a subway fight on their way to see a Broadway musical.


Stockholm police officers Erik Naslund, 26, Samuel Kvarzell, 25, Makrus Asberg, 25, and Eric Jansberger, 28, were on the northbound 6 train at the Bleecker Street stop Wednesday just before 5 p.m. when the conductor came over the loudspeaker and asked if any police officers were on board the train.

The men responded to the adjoining train car to break up a fight between two homeless men."


The Swedish police officers could have said to themselves "this isn`t our jurisdiction", and ignored the call over the loudspeaker asking if any cops were on board the train.
