More harrowing encounters have emerged from New York City subway riders detailing their encounters with the 30-year-old homeless man, Jordan Neely, who was put into a chokehold by a fellow subway passenger on Monday after reported "hostile and erratic" behavior.

One user on Reddit said, "This man jumped on me, grabbed my shoulders, and pushed me towards the tracks Sunday night at this very station."

The station where Neely died was the Broadway-Lafayette station in downtown Manhattan, while inside a northbound F train. 

"I was able to run away but he got physical and chased other people standing on the platform before getting on an uptown train," the Reddit user added. Neely's encounter with the Reddit user was Sunday, a day before the incident where he was placed in a chokehold.

Neely had a warrant out for his arrest at the time of the fatal incident and had been arrested more than 44 times including on charges of assaulting a senior citizen and public lewdness.

Footage emerged of the incident which showed Neely being taken to the ground by a Marine veteran who then placed him in the chokehold. 

According to the New York Post, Neely was shouting at passengers and said he did not "care if I go to jail, and if they give me life in prison."

The New York medical examiner determined that Neely died from "compression of the neck." The incident is being investigated by DA Alvin Bragg.

Protestors gathered at the MTA stop at Broadway-Lafayette Streets in downtown Manhattan to protest the killing, and shouted Neely’s name on the streets near the subway stop where Neely was pronounced dead.

New York's Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to write, "Jordan Neely was murdered. But bc Jordan was houseless and crying for food in a time when the city is raising rents and stripping services to militarize itself while many in power demonize the poor, the murderer gets protected w/ passive headlines + no charges. It’s disgusting."
