At large suspect wanted for assault against Fox News weather man Adam Klotz.

NEW YORK, NY – One of the suspects wanted for the brutal beating and assault of Fox News weatherman Adam Klotz was identified by police today. Detectives with the 13th Precinct published a photo of a young black male suspect.

Three of the attackers were arrested. One fled.

Now, the New York City Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the individual in the released photo.

Klotz was assaulted on the southbound 1 train after stepping in to help another passenger who had just had their hair lit on fire by the suspects.


After he stepped in, Klotz became the focus of the attackers. They proceeded to beat him. He fled to another car and said the attackers followed him and gloated about beating him, telling him that he should have kept his mouth shut.

Klotz was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was treated and released. He appeared on Fox and Friends to speak about his ordeal Monday morning.

He said he’s more concerned with the city fixing the problem of rampant violent crimes than bringing justice to those who attacked him. He criticized city officials for failing to make New Yorkers safe. The three suspects were issued citations and released by police.

Things went from bad to worse for a Fox News weatherman after watching his New York Giants get severely beaten by the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday night. Little did he know his night was about to take a frightful turn.

Fox News meteorologist Adam Klotz was attacked on a New York City subway Sunday by a group of “children,” according to authorities and Klotz’s social media posts.


“Last night, coming home from watching the Giants game at a bar on the subway, this older gentleman was being hassled by this group of seven or eight teens,” Klotz said in an Instagram story posted Sunday.

Klotz then described being beaten by the group, showing cuts on his face in the social media post and describing injuries to his ribs. He also noted that the man being harassed was able to get away safely.

Three of the suspects were arrested by police officers, but later released, according to the New York Post. Police told the NYP the incident occurred around 1:00 a.m Sunday.

while the headline I just read, “viciously beaten by teens,” is true, it’s doing way more damage to my ego than the physical beating did

“Where are the parents?” Klotz asked in an earlier story on Instagram, where he joked about the incident involving “five of six children” and urged parents not to allow their kids to “beat up people in the middle of the night” before he made the second post.


Crime on New York City’s subways rose 40.2% in January through October 2022 compared to those same months in 2021, according to statistics released by the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA).

“It’s all good! You know what I mean? New York City! New York City! Ahh, what a place. The Big Apple!” Klotz said on Instagram.
