31-year-old Erika Menendez walked out of the 112th Precinct in Forest Hills, charged with murder as a hate crime.

Police tell PIX11 she is the woman in this surveillance video seen running from No. 7 train station in Queens, .moments after pushing Sunando Sen onto the tracks as the train entered the station.

Sunando Sen, 46, was waiting for the 7 train when police say, Menendez came up behind him and shoved him onto the tracks.

Sunando Sen, 46, was waiting for the 7 train when police say, Menendez came up behind him and shoved him onto the tracks.

More chilling is the statement Menendez allegedly made to police.

“I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks ..because I hate Hindus and Muslims….ever since 2001 when they put down the Twin Towers, I’ve been beating them up.”

Sen’s funeral arrangements are being prepared at a funeral home in Rego Park while Menendez under goes a psychiatric evaluation.

The Queens District Attorney says Menendez was incoherent at her arraignment. At one point she was laughing out loud, out of control. If convicted, she faces 25 years to life in prison.
