Dude Goes Berserk On NYC Subway Platform - Pushes Woman Into Moving Train
NEW YORK (AP) – A man abruptly pushed a woman into the side of a moving New York City subway train, then told bystanders he couldn’t explain his behavior, authorities said. The woman was hit but survived.
Jose Rojas, 25, was held without bail after his arraignment Thursday on attempted murder and assault charges, while victim Ute Linhart was hospitalized with broken ribs, a crushed sinus cavity and other injuries.
Rojas menaced another man on a Manhattan subway platform Wednesday night before walking up to Linhart, according to a court complaint.
Then she was suddenly shoved forcefully into a northbound R train rushing into the 28th Street station, the complaint said. The impact hurled her back toward the platform.
