Police release photo of suspect in Bronx subway shove

2

Police on Tuesday night released photos of a woman suspected of randomly shoving a Bronx commuter onto the subway tracks early Tuesday morning.

In the photos, the unidentified suspect is seen wearing distinctive yellow pants, white shoes and a dark top.

Police believe she shoved 54-year-old Rosa Galeas, who told The Post she was on her way to work when the woman pushed her onto the elevated tracks at the 174th Street station at about 7:50 a.m.

With the help of a good Samaritan, Galeas made it back up the platform before the next train pulled into the station.

“The guy next to me, I don’t know if he was in shock, but he took me out,” she said.

Galeas suffered some cuts and bruises and was treated at St. Barnabas Hospital, before returning home later in the day.

“I always have that fear that someone can hurt me so I don’t walk near the train,” Galeas said. “I always walk away, but this person was a young woman and, I don’t know, she pushed me with such force. The second time, I fell.”

The assailant fled the station on foot, later entering a nearby bodega.

Tuesday’s incident was the latest in a recent wave of attacks within the city’s transit system.

Hours after the woman was shoved in the Bronx, an MTA bus driver was attacked in Brooklyn.

Police have also reported five subway slashings in the past week, most recently a Sunday night attack that left a 28-year-old man with a gash to the face.
