The anti-Israel protester who stormed a NYC subway car, demanding that “Zionists” raise their hands and leave, was arrested Wednesday following a weeks-long manhunt, according to the NYPD.

Anas Saleh, 24, of Staten Island, turned himself in with his attorney around 9:30 a.m. after the NYPD released a wanted poster featuring his face in the wake of the hate-filled incident at Manhattan’s Union Square station.

This time, he appeared fully masked, wearing both a COVID-19 N-95 mask and a Keffiyeh, without the grin he had previously displayed.

Saleh was charged with attempted coercion and released with a desk appearance ticket, authorities said.

Saleh, who is believed to have worked as a research technician at Weill Cornell Medicine’s Rhee Lab, now awaits a decision on prosecution from DA Alvin Bragg.
