Via Crime Watch Daily: This could help ease New Yorkers' fears of being slashed on the subway ... as long as we don't resemble a certain talented douche: A guy just got assaulted at a subway station for looking like Shia LaBeouf.
A 26-year-old man was punched in the face for looking like celebrity actor Shia LaBeouf.
Police said the incident happened on the stairwell of Delancey Avenue Station around 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
Mario Licato was on his way to meet friends at Pianos bar nearby, but a man in his 20s stopped him and threw a punch, police said.
The man allegedly said ” this is because you look like Shia LaBeouf” before running away, according to the NYPD.
Imagine if the assailant winds up being Shia himself? “I once punched a man just for lookin' like me.”
