Woman arrested after man pushed in front of subway

Man is second in a month to be pushed on tracks


A woman wanted in connection to the death of a man shoved in front of a subway train this week is in custody, New York police said Saturday. The woman made "statements implicating herself in the death of Sunando Sen," according to a police statement.

This is the second time in a month a man has been shoved to his death in front of a train on a New York City subway platform, police said.

The NYPD on Friday identified the victim as Sunando Sen, 46, of Queens, New York.


Police had sought a woman seen running from an elevated station for the No. 7 train in Queens on Thursday evening, Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said in a statement.

According to witnesses, the woman was pacing the platform and talking to herself shortly before pushing the man onto the tracks as the 11-car train entered the station.

The man's body was pinned under the second car after it came to a stop.

Police describe her as a heavy-set woman in her 20s, wearing a ski jacket and sneakers. Security video shows her running from the scene, shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday.

Sen's roommate, Ar Suman, 33, told CNN on Friday that after living together for over a year they had become like "family."

"I came home and I heard this happened," said Suman, "I am feeling very bad."

Sen owned a shop called "New Amsterdam Copies" and was a graphic designer for posters, according to Suman.

In early December, Ki-Suck Han, 58, was shoved onto the tracks in a Times Square station as a train approached.

Naeem Davis, 30, a homeless man, has been charged with second-degree murder in the case.
