NEW YORK (AP) — A suspect was awaiting arraignment Saturday in the death of a man who was pushed onto a subway tracks and suffered a fatal head injury, authorities said.
Andre Boyce, 28, was arrested on a manslaughter charge. It’s not immediately clear whether he has an attorney who can speak to the charges. A call to a possible number for his Manhattan address rang unanswered Saturday morning.
Police got a call around 2 a.m. Friday that a man was shoved onto the southbound No. 1 line track. Officers were posted at the station and responded. They found a 34-year-old man on the track with a head wound, police said in a release.
The man, whose name hasn’t been released, died after being taken to a hospital.
Authorities haven’t released information on what interaction if any, the man had with Boyce before ending up on the tracks.
