NEW YORK - The NYPD says they have arrested and charged a Brooklyn man after he allegedly kicked a woman down a subway escalator earlier this week.
Bradley Hill, 32, is facing charges of assault and attempted assault in connection to the incident.
Authorities say that on September 9, at around 7:15 p.m., Hill got into an argument with a 32-year-old woman on an escalator at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center subway station. When the argument escalated, police say hill kicked the woman in her chest, causing her to fall several feet down the escalator.
The victim suffered cuts and bruises to her back, arms, and legs, but refused medical attention at the scene.
The Daily News reported the attack stemmed from a dispute over the man's failure to apologize after brushing past the woman on the escalator. The man attacked the woman after she told him he could've said, "excuse me," the newspaper reported.
The woman told the newspaper she was aware of the arrest. She characterized the incident as a "bad experience."
