A 60-year-old man was pushed onto the tracks by an unknown stranger in an unprovoked attack on Saturday morning in a Harlem subway station, police and sources said.
The victim stood around 5 a.m. on the platform at 2/3 135th Street and Lenox Avenue when a 25-year-old man who pushed him came up to him from behind, authorities said.
At this point there was no train in the station and the victim was “consciously and vigilantly” assisted by another straphanger from the tracks, police and sources said. He was taken to Harlem Hospital, authorities added.
The attacker was arrested at the scene and taken to Harlem Hospital for a psychological examination, police said.
