A man was killed after being pushed in front of an approaching No. 7 train in Sunnyside last night, the second incident of its kind in New York City this month.
Sunando Sen was pushed as the Flushing-bound train approached the 40th Street station at approximately 8 p.m.
As the train pulled into the station, the suspect rose from a nearby bench and shoved the man, who did not notice her, witnesses said.
The suspect fled out of the station after pushing the victim and was caught on surveillance near the train. There are no security cameras in the station, a situation Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer said he will push to change.
“It does strike me that in a post-9/11 world that there are no cameras at any stop,” Van Bramer said.
She is described as Hispanic, 5-feet-5-inches tall, weighing 190 pounds. She was last seen wearing a blue, gray and white jacket and Nike sneakers. Police are offering a $12,000 reward for capture.
The suspect reportedly was seen mumbling and pacing on the platform before shoving the man.
Ki-Suk Han, 58, of Elmhurst, was killed on December 3 when he was pushed in front of a Q train at the 49th Street-Seventh Avenue station. Suspect Naeem Davis was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.
