Picture released of suspect who pushed man onto train tracks

Police have released a picture of the man they say pushed a commuter onto the subway tracks in the Bronx causing his leg to be run over by a train.



The incident happened Wednesday at the Grand Concourse and East 170th Street station in Mount Eden around 6:45 a.m. 



Police say the 21-year-old man was pushed off of the platform and onto the tracks after an argument with the suspect. They say the two did not know each other. 



The man's leg was run over by an approaching train, but he only suffered an ankle injury, police say.



He was transported to Lincoln Hospital in serious condition, but is now stable, according to police. 



The suspect is described as being in his 20s and was last seen wearing a green coat and beanie hat. 



The incident briefly interrupted service on the B and D lines, but was restored shortly after.



Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
