23-year-old Woman Arrested Again After Being Released In Midtown Subway Cellist Assault

The woman, who is 23 years old and previously accused of assaulting a subway cellist by hitting him on the head with a bottle, has been arrested once again for allegedly committing another crime.

Amira Hunter, despite having been arrested eight times before and having two active bench warrants for failing to appear in court, was granted supervised release by a judge following her arrest in the subway assault.

The prosecution had requested $15,000 in cash bail.

Hunter, who was recently released in connection with the subway attack, has been apprehended again. This time, she is accused of stealing a Moncler baseball cap worth $235 from Nordstrom on West 57th Street on Tuesday.

She faced charges of petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.


Hunter’s arraignment took place on Wednesday afternoon, where she was held on $500 cash bail. The prosecution had initially requested $10,000 in cash.

Transit Chief Michael Kemper highlighted Hunter’s recent arrest on Wednesday morning as a prime illustration of the city’s ongoing issue with repeat offenses.

In October, she was arrested for grand larceny charges after allegedly stealing two bathing suits worth $2,050 from Bergdorf Goodman. Prior to that, she had been arrested twice in 2019 for reportedly assaulting her mother.

Governor Kathy Hochul has announced that New York National Guard troops and New York State Police troopers have been deployed following the news of her latest arrest.
