SUNNYSIDE (WABC) -- A woman sought in the death of a man who was shoved in front of a subway train was picked up by police on Saturday after a passer-by noticed her on the street and called authorities. The subway pusher has been identified as 31-year-old, Erica Menendez, according to the Queens DA. Menendez is being charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime. According to police, Menendez told detectives, "I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the twin towers I've been beating them up." Authorities say there were no words exchanged before Menendez pushed Sen onto the elevated tracks as the train approached just after 8 p.m. Witnesses say they had no time to react, and passengers on the train had no idea what happened.
