Two teenagers on a New York City subway train harassed another passenger who they believed was gay, and one even videotaped the incident, police said. Daniel Jamile and Nkrumah Ajomajberin, both 17, were arrested Saturday night on charges of menacing, resisting arrest, and obstructing government administration, said detective Cheryl Crispin, a police spokeswoman. The teens confronted the 24-year-old New Jersey man just before midnight Saturday on a subway train in midtown Manhattan, police said. They yelled antigay threats, and one taunted the man with a lighter while the other wielded the camera, police said. Officers arrested Jamile and Ajomajberin at the Times Square subway station and seized the camera. Detectives are reviewing the videotape.
