A South Richmond Hill woman was arrested for shoving a straphanger into a moving train car at a Manhattan subway station Tuesday.

Linda Chavez, 33, allegedly pushed a 31-year-old woman into an oncoming 6 train as it approached the Lexington Avenue/59th Street station at around 5:40 p.m., police said.

The woman struck the side of the first subway car and fell back onto the platform. She was rushed to Lenox Hill Hospital for an injury to her arm, but is in stable condition.

Chavez, of 101st Avenue, was arrested on charges of attempted murder and attempted assault at the scene of the random attack, police said.

Officers who were inside the subway station at the time of the attack took Chavez into custody without incident.

A police spokesperson said Chavez is believed to be emotionally disturbed.
