After knocking the woman down, the suspect leaped onto the tracks and dashed away, cops say.

Cops have arrested a man they say pushed a woman face-first into a subway car during a verbal and physical dispute at the Dekalb Avenue station in Brooklyn on Wednesday.

According to the NYPD, the incident happened on Wednesday around 7 p.m. on the southbound D and M train platform.

After knocking the woman down, the suspect leaped onto the tracks and dashed down the subway tunnel, according to cops.

Twitter user Brooke Sabel posted a video online showing the push.

Police say Isaiah Thompson was arrested Thursday on assault and other charges. Information on his lawyer wasn’t available.

The 28-year-old Thompson was arrested in May after police said he was the man seen on a video pulling a train’s emergency brake and fleeing.

Police believe Thompson is responsible for dozens of similar brake-pulling stunts that caused extensive delays.
