NY woman hurt in apparent track push
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a woman suffered a leg injury when she was apparently pushed in front of an on-coming train at the White Plains station by a homeless man.
Metro-North says the victim, a woman in her 20s, was struck by an empty northbound train just after 11 a.m. Wednesday. She was taken to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla and is expected to survive.
A Metro-North spokeswoman tells The Journal News that the suspect, identified as 39-year-old Howard Mickens, is in MTA police custody. Charges against him are pending. It wasn't clear if he had a lawyer.
