The woman who filmed this week’s bloody mayhem aboard an A-train vowed to “never again” ride the NYC rails.

“I’m not feeling good. I’m still traumatized. I can’t even step outside.” Sherri Paul told The Post from her Brooklyn residence on Saturday.

“My body keeps on shaking…I’m in pain. I got trampled.

“I’m looking into moving out of New York. It’s extremely not safe for me as a single mother,” she said.

The medical assistant was aboard a northbound A train Thursday around 4:45 p.m. when DaJuan Robinson began randomly acting aggressively towards fellow straphangerYounece Obuad.

Robinson, 36, had entered the subway system illegally in Brooklyn before the evening rush and targeted Obuad, 32,, taunting the stranger, displaying a knife and finally pulling a handgun as chaos ensued, according to cops and video.

As the train approached the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station, Obaud did not pay any attention Robinson, Paul said.

However, Robinson would not let up.

Paul does not believe Obaud should be charged with a crime, but she does not feel he is a hero either. “He was defending himself, but is killing [shooting someone] a good thing?” she asked

Law-enforcement sources told The Post Robinson appeared to have been harassing the stranger because he wrongly thought Obuad was a recent migrant.

As the pair scuffled, Obuad ended up shooting Robinson four times with his own gun, including through the eye, leaving him in critical condition.

Paul was able to record most of the incident on her phone.

Paul said the city needs to either add more security cameras or more police officers.

“There was no police. It [the incident] was like thirty seconds before the train stopped. Imagine if it was two minutes or three minutes,” she said.

Joyce Philippe, a journalist with ABC News, who also witnessed the chaos on the train and posted a video to X, said Saturday that she was “still shaken and traumatized, but better.”
