MANHATTAN: Trans Woman Pushed Onto Subway Tracks In Possible Hate Crime

Via NBC New York:
A transgender woman was pushed onto the subway tracks at a Greenwich Village station by a man "acting erratically" who demanded to know what she was looking at, police said Wednesday. Authorities said they are investigating the case as a hate crime. The 28-year-old victim was on the southbound platform waiting for the 6 train at Lafayette and Bleecker streets Monday morning when she was approached by the suspect, according to police. He allegedly asked her "What are you looking at?," then ran to a garbage can, where he fished out an empty plastic bottle and threw it at her, according to police. The man pushed the woman onto the tracks, then ran away. The woman was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where she was treated for cuts and bruises and released.
