Cops arrested the suspect who allegedly pushed a man onto the tracks at a Brooklyn subway station.

According to police, at 11:25 a.m. on Nov. 22, a 29-year-old man was on a northbound 4 train en route to the Atlantic Terminal station when a man began to yell at him. When the train arrived at the station, the victim detrained and the suspect followed.
