The Swedish cops in NYC as tourists, stopped fight on NYC subway.

Four Swedish cops were on their way to see Les Miserables when they jumped into a modern-day uprising below ground in New York City.


Instead of Javert and Jean Valjean, they found themselves witnessing a different drama: a rock-’em, sock-’em brawl between two homeless men, The New York Post reports.


And there was no Claude-Michel Schönberg score.


“Are there any police officers on the train?!” the operator of their uptown 6 train yelled over the train’s intercom early Wednesday evening.


So Erik Naslund, Samuel Kvarzell, Marcus Asberg and Eric Jansberger got up and headed toward the front of the train, which at this point had pulled into the Bleecker St. station.

As passengers ran from the fight, the four Stockholm Police Department officers sprung into action.

“One of the guys was on top of the other guy so we separated them,” Asberg told The Post. Naslund said the aggressor in the brawl was yelling and resisting so they pinned him until New York City cops arrived on the scene.

A witness told The Post: “[The attacker] was making a lot of noise, yelling on the train at apparently no one. The other guy did nothing.”

“It was pretty routine,” Jansberger said later, rejecting accolades that he and his fellow cops were heroes.

“We came just to make sure no one got hurt. We were trying to stop the fight,” he said. “We came here for vacation; we’ve been here one day. We’re no heroes, just tourists.”
