The accused subway brake-yanker who lives to “create mayhem” has “gone too far,” his aunt told The Post on Friday.
“It’s been serious,” said Victoria Coaxum of her nephew, purported subway saboteur Isaiah Thompson. “It’s way more than him being a daredevil and it’s gone too far.”
Coaxum, 46, added that Thompson, 23, has “some mental issues going on” but declined to elaborate.
“I’m hoping he gets the help he needs now,” she said, speaking outside the Brooklyn home where Thompson was busted late Thursday for allegedly pulling a subway brake on a northbound No. 2 near 14th Street in Manhattan on Tuesday.
Thompson was awaiting arraignment at Manhattan criminal court for charges including reckless endangerment and criminal trespass Friday afternoon.
Police are probing whether he is the menace who has busted into train control cabs and triggered the emergency brakes on 40 trains since February.
He has 15 prior arrests, most of them for subway-related crimes, authorities said.
“Prison is not the answer for him,” said Coaxum. “He needs way more than that.”
