The man suspected of pushing Ki-Suk Han, 58, off the subway platform into the path of an oncoming New York City train, has been identified as Naeem Davis. He was taken into custody earlier Tuesday and has reportedly made statements incriminating himself, the NY Post reports.
Han was tossed onto the subway track at 49th Street and Seventh Avenue around 12:30 p.m. Monday after Han confronted a mumbling man who was alarming other passengers on the train platform. Han tried to scramble back onto the platform, but was crushed by an oncoming train.
The suspect fled the station, prompting a police dragnet for a man described by witnesses and see on surveillance video as a 6-foot-tall, 200-pound black man wearing dreadlocks in his hair.
Witnesses tried to revive the victim after he was hit and provided descriptions of the suspect to police. Source
