NYC Mayor Eric Adams calls 911 to report brawl on first day of job

New York City Mayor Eric Adams jumped headfirst into tackling the city’s rise in crime when he called 911 to report an assault while taking the subway to work on his first day on the job.

The former police officer, who was sworn in as mayor just hours earlier, spotted three men fighting in a street in Brooklyn around 8am on Saturday morning.

Footage posted on social media shows Mr Adams watching the men through a railing from where he stood on the platform at the Kosciuszko J stop in Brooklyn on his way to City Hall.
