*A Bronx man was arrested days after he was caught on camera shoving a woman onto subway train tracks.

The 52-year-old woman walking on the platform at the Jackson Ave Station over the weekend when Theodore Ellis, 31, pushed her onto the train track.

Miraculously, no train was approaching the station at the time of the incident and witnesses helped the woman off of the tracks. NYPD investigators said the victim sustained multiple cuts on her arms and head.

An MTA worker recognized Ellis returning back to the station on Tuesday shortly before noon and alerted police. He was arrested and charged with assault and reckless endangerment. The worker also told police that Ellis frequented the station and sold “illegal swipes.”

A $3,500 reward was offered for information leading to the arrest of the attacker.

Police arrested Ellis on charges of assault and reckless endangerment. Ellis could not be reached for comment, and it was not clear if he had a lawyer, according to Reuters.
