New York, NY – The man police think may be the NYC subway pusher has been apprehended, according to ABC News.
Authorities explained that the suspect has implicated himself in the crime. Deputy Commissioner for Public Information Paul Browne said the man was questioned yesterday afternoon, leading officers to place him under arrest. However, he has not been charged with the crime as of this writing.
NBC News obtained exclusive footage of police leading the suspected NYC subway pusher away in handcuffs. Although the man is now in police custody, authorities said there are still more line-ups scheduled for tomorrow.
Police have yet to release the suspect’s name to the public.
The Inquisitr reported yesterday that 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han died after being shoved into the path of a subway train in New York City. An unidentified man fled the scene before police arrived on the scene.
The unsettling incident was captured on surveillance cameras and by a photographer who happened to be standing nearby when Han was pushed onto the track.
R. Umar Abbasi appeared on the Today Show this morning to defend his decision to snap photographs instead of helping Han get off the tracks before it was too late.
“My condolences to the family, and if I could have, I would have pulled Mr. Han out,” the photographer explained. “I didn’t care about the photographs. If you were to see the raw photographs, you would say, I cannot see anything in them.”
Abbasi insists there was nothing he could do to say Han’s life.
“If this thing happened again with the same circumstances, whether I had a camera or not and I was running towards it, there was no way I could’ve rescued Mr. Han,” he said.
As of this writing, it’s unknown if the suspected NYC subway pusher is the man who actually committed this horrible crime.
