Pushy subway user kicks woman down escalator after saying ‘say excuse me’

A pushy subway user kicked a woman down the escalator after she told her attacker 'say excuse me'.

Surveillance cameras captured the shocking moment when the woman was kicked in the chest, causing her to fall several feet.

New York City police say the 32-year-old was attacked after she confronted a man for shoving past her on the escalator at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center Station on Thursday evening.

According to the Daily News, the woman told her attacker to 'say excuse me'.

He responded 'I did' before kicking her in the chest, causing her to fall backwards to the bottom of the escalator as the suspect continued up the escalator and out of the station.

The victim suffered cuts and bruises to her back, arms, legs, right knee and right thigh and trauma to her left ankle, noting that she refused medical attention at the scene.

The New York Police Department released photos of the suspect on Sunday night and are asking for the public's help in identifying him.

The shocking attack comes amid a crime surge in New York.

Police arrested a 37-year-old man in connection to a string of Manhattan groping attacks. The victim's ages ranged from 11 to 31.

The attacks involved a man on a scooter who casually rode up to his victims before groping their breasts and speeding away.

The suspect has been connected to at least six of nine reported groping incidents.

The arrest followed a violent Labor Day weekend in New York where nine people were shot.

In an unrelated incident, two men were brutally attacked with a glass bottle while being called homophobic slurs at a Brooklyn store on September 4.
