Cops are looking for a suspect who tried to push a man in front of a train pulling into a Financial District station.
According to police, at 3:50 p.m. on July 25 a 40-year-old man was standing on the platform for the northbound 2/3 train at the Park Place station when he was approached by an unknown man. Unprovoked, the suspect pushed the victim, causing him to fall to the platform floor.
The victim managed to avoid falling toward the train, which had just arrived at the station. The suspect boarded the train and shouted profanity as the train left. The victim suffered minor injuries to his leg but refused medical attention at the scene.
The NYPD released a photo and video of the suspect jumping the turnstile at the Park Place subway station:
The suspect is described as a man in his 40s with a dark complexion and a medium build, standing 6 feet, 1 inch tall and weighing 240 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black du-rag, a black t-shirt, black pants and red & white sneakers.
