Cops seek suspect in subway shoving

- The NYPD released security camera images of a man suspected of shoving a commuter onto subway tracks in Washington Heights on Saturday.

Police are looking for a man who got into an argument with a 50-year-old man on the southbound platform of the West 181 Street and Fort Washington Avenue station on Saturday at about 8:20 a.m. The man then pushed the 50-year-old onto the tracks.

How the victim got off the tracks is not clear, but EMS brought him to Harlem Hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

The attacker apparently boarded a southbound A train and got away, the NYPD said. Police described the suspect as white, approximately 6 feet, 160 pounds, and around 50.

The incident was the second subway shoving in two days. The night before, a man wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat attacked another man in the Union Square station.

If you have any information, you can contact NYPD's Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS or www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.  Police say that all calls are confidential.
