On the morning of the 15th local time, a case of pushing a person occurred on the platform of the Times Square subway station in New York City.

A 40-year-old Asian woman was pushed onto the tracks and died at the scene after being struck by the train.

It is reported that the suspect fled the scene and then surrendered to the police station. He has been detained.

This person has a previous arrest record.

  Police said the victim had not had any contact with the suspect before the incident, and the suspect had harassed another non-Asian woman before pushing the person, but was avoided by the other party.

Investigators have not yet determined whether the case was racially motivated.
