Fortunately the suspect failed both times thanks to the help of good Samaritans who stopped the attacks.
- The NYPD hate crimes task force is investigating an attempted subway push of an Asian woman. It happened last Wednesday at the Metropolitan Avenue G train stop in East Williamsburg. Police say a man grabbed the victim's arm and tried twice to throw her onto the tracks without saying a word. Several good Samaritans stopped him, and the woman was not injured, but the attacker is still on the loose.
