NYC crime: Woman shoved onto subway tracks
The NYPD is searching for the man accused of shoving a woman onto the subway tracks at the Chambers Street station in Tribeca.
TRIBECA, N.Y. - The search is on for the man accused of shoving a woman onto the subway tracks in Tribeca.
It happened just after 11 p.m. Tuesday night at the Chambers Street station.
Police say the 34-year-old victim was on the southbound 1,2,3 train platform when she was pushed by an unknown man.
The rushing water was only a few inches deep on the street, but videos posted to social media showed the flood cascading into the Times Square subway station, down stairwells and through ventilation grates.
There was no train approaching at that time and bystanders helped her get back on the platform.
The woman suffered a minor leg injury.
The suspect fled the scene.
