A man allegedly groped a woman on a New York City subway platform before pushing her onto the train tracks. According to a Fox affiliate in New York, the 22-year-old woman survived and was pulled to safety by an onlooker. She was taken to the hospital with injuries to her wrist, shoulder and leg.
The assailant, 24-year-old Kimani Stephenson, is facing attempted murder and sex abuse charges.
The woman was standing on the Manhattan subway platform at a Manhattan station around 4:20 a.m. on Friday when she was approached by Stephenson. He allegedly touched on her chest and groin, according to the report. Police said the 22-year-old woman confronted Stephenson and he allegedly responded by pushing her onto the subway tracks. Then he fled.
The victim was identified as Bonnie Currie by a CBS affiliate.
“He pushed me as hard as he could push me onto the subway tracks,” Currie said in that report. “Then I screamed for help, and luckily, there were two people that were there in that hour – in that early hour – which was so lucky, and they pulled me off of the tracks.”
