Toronto/CMEDIA: Police are reportedly looking for a suspect on an attempted murder charge, who allegedly pushed a woman onto the tracks at a Toronto subway station Sunday evening at Yonge Station just after 9 p.m.
When emergency crews arrived, police said that the victim was found conscious and breathing.
Originally the police said that the woman was hit by the train, but later clarified she was injured due to the fall.
A surveillance image of the suspect was issued on Monday by the Toronto Police in an effort to identify the suspect.
Police described the suspect as a woman with blonde hair with an average build and added she was last seen wearing a grey ‘Levi’s’ shirt, black jacket, black pants, white shoes, pink and grey toque, and carrying a gray bag.
Toronto police said it was unclear why the suspect pushed the woman as they did not see any reason to believe the two women knew one another.
TTC suspended subway service on Line 2 between St. George and Broadview stations after this incident causing trains on Line 1 also bypass Bloor-Yonge Station.
Just After 11 p.m. both subway lines resumed their regular service.
This is the second incident in five months that someone was pushed onto the tracks at Bloor-Yonge subway station. It was on Nov 26 that a suspect shoved a man who fell onto the tracks as a train approached, said the police.
