Man Arrested on Charges of Pushing Woman onto NYC Subway Tracks

November 3, 2020

Police have arrested a man suspected of knocking a 73-year-old woman onto New York City subway tracks after her family scolded him for smoking marijuana.

Luis Hernandez, 38, was to appear in court on Tuesday to face charges of attempted murder and assault. The name of his attorney wasn't immediately available.

The incident happened late last month during a confrontation between the suspect and the woman's husband and grandson on a subway platform in Brooklyn, police said. He began punching and kicking at the family, sending her tumbling onto the tracks, police said.

The woman was pulled to safety ahead of the next train. The man fled before police arrived.
