A deranged man fatally pushed an Asian woman in front of an oncoming subway train Saturday morning in Times Square, police and sources said.
The horrifying episode unfolded at around 9:40 a.m. when the unidentified woman was struck by a southbound R train at the Times Square N/Q/R line on West 42nd Street and Broadway, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
The attack appeared random, sources said.
“A person of interest has been taken into custody,” the department spokeswoman said.
