The NYPD is still searching for the woman suspected of shoving a man in front of a Flushing-bound 7 train at the 40th Street station in Sunnyside.

To help with their manhunt, the police have released surveillance footage of the suspect fleeing the scene after allegedly pushing the unidentified man onto the tracks.

"This lady, she just pushed the guy on the tracks. Then she ran away," a witness told the New York Post. "I was screaming and closing my eyes."


According to the five people who were on the platform around 8 PM last night, there wasn't enough time to save the man from certain doom.


The woman was described by NYPD spokesman Paul Browne as Hispanic with a "heavy-set" frame, approximately 5'5", 190 pounds, and between the ages of 20 and 25. Her hair is short, dark, and curly, and she was wearing a blue, white and grey ski jacket and red and grey Nike sneakers.

"She was acting weird and crazy," a law-enforcement source close to the investigation told the Post, adding that witnesses saw her sitting alone and mumbling to herself.

She would occasionally get up to pace around, but had no interaction with the victim prior to the incident.

A surveillance camera located on the street caught the suspect running away from the scene, but her direction remains unknown.
