The bone-chilling moment a woman shoved an unsuspecting commuter into the path of an oncoming train at a New York City subway station has been captured on surveillance camera.

In what is believed to be an unprovoked attack, the victim, a 42-year-old woman, was shoved from the platform at Times Square subway station and into the train as it approached.

The woman was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition after sustaining facial injuries.

NYPD has now arrested the woman seen on video pushing the subway rider into a train, accoridng to CBS New York.

Police said Anthonia Egegbara, 29, was charged Tuesday with attempted murder.

In the video, Egegbara is seen suddenly jumping up from a bench inside the 42nd Street and Seventh Avenue station and violently shoving the victim, who is off-camera.

Video shows it happened as a northbound No. 1 train was speeding into the station.

Egegbara then appears to calmly walk away, as several other bystanders on the platform appear relatively unaffected.


Police say the 42-year-old woman did not fall onto the tracks, but rather the force of the push knocked her into the moving train before she ricocheted backward onto the platform.

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital with facial injuries police said are serious but not life-threatening, PIX 11 reported.

Detectives canvassed the area and interviewed witnesses, and are requesting anyone with information about the attack to come forward.

NYPD Crime Stoppers is asking anyone with information to call 1-800-577-TIPS.

The same NYPD officers who responded to the shoving incident were back to work hours later, canvassing both the street and below ground after reports of gunfire at the same transit hub, WNBC reported.

A man in his 30s appeared to have been shot in a leg on a southbound platform. 

An officer at the scene near the corner of 40th Street and Seventh Avenue told a WNBC reporter it seemed the victim inadvertently wounded himself, though the incident remains under investigation. 

Monday's shooting is the third at the tourist hotspot this year.
