NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say they have a suspect in custody in the death of a man who was shoved in front of a speeding subway train.

An NYPD spokesman said Saturday that detectives had questioned a woman and that she had "made statements implicating herself" in the Thursday night killing.

Authorities didn't immediately name the woman.

Victim Sunando Sen died Thursday night when a woman who had been muttering to herself on a train platform in Queens suddenly knocked him on the tracks as a train entered the station.

The woman fled after the attack. Police had released security camera video showing her running from the station.
