Shocking new video captures the moment an attacker randomly shoved a woman into the side of an arriving train at Times Square this week.
The video, released by the NYPD, shows the bandana-wearing female suspect sitting on a bench on the platform just after 8 a.m. Monday — and getting up to push the 42-year-old victim from behind just as a No. 3 train pulls into the station.
The victim slammed into the side of the oncoming train, but did not fall onto the tracks, cops said. She instead toppled backwards onto the platform, suffering severe injuries to her face and legs.
She was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition, according to police.
The two women did not know each other, and the incident was unprovoked, cops said.
The suspect, who cops say appeared to be in her 30s, was last seen wearing black sneakers, beige pants, a black sweater and a multicolored scarf. She fled after the assault.
