A New York City man was arrested on assault charges for allegedly shoving a commuter on to subway tracks in Manhattan on Monday evening. 

Clarence Anderson, 36, was arrested for the “unprovoked” attack, according to the NYPD. 

The victim, a 25-year-old man, was randomly pushed on to the tracks around 9:30 p.m. while waiting for the train at the 14th Street-Union Square station. 

“Scary sh–, man,” the victim, who asked not to be identified, told the New York Post. “Honestly, I never thought this would happen to me. I’ve heard of this stuff happening, but I didn’t think it would be me.”

Transit crime is up 41.6% throughout New York City so far this year, according to NYPD data.
