The man who was shoved to his death in front of a subway train Thursday night was a 46-year-old from India who lived in New York City and worked for a printing business, police said.
Investigators on Friday searched for an unidentified woman who rose from a bench and suddenly pushed the man in the back with both hands, sending him flying onto the tracks as a train entered an elevated station in Queens.
Police released surveillance video of the woman fleeing the area and have been interviewing witnesses, including some who said she was mumbling and cursing to herself before the attack.
A suspect was arrested on a murder charge Wednesday in the death of a man who was pushed in front of a subway train and photographed just before he was fatally struck.
Officer James Duffy said Naeem Davis, 30, has made statements implicating himself in Ki-Suck Han’s death.
Witnesses told investigators they saw a man talking to himself Monday afternoon before he approached Han at the Times Square station, got into an altercation with him and pushed him into the train’s path. Davis was taken into custody Tuesday after police viewed a security video showing a man fitting the description of the suspect working with street vendors near Rockefeller Center, police said.
