The months-long hunt for a suspect accused of shoving an Asian man onto the subway tracks in Queens has ended after he was apprehended for allegedly groping a woman on the train.

On January 6, 23-year-old Ronald Lacey was arrested for allegedly groping a woman at the Union Square subway station. At his arraignment two days later, he was additionally charged with an incident that took place in May 2021 wherein he is said to have shoved a man onto the subway tracks as a train approached.

Lacey is currently being held in custody on multiple counts, including attempted murder and assault. Although the man he pushed onto the tracks was Asian, authorities are not currently pursuing hate crime charges.

On the morning of May 24, 2021, commuters watched in horror as Lacey allegedly walked up to a man and pushed him onto the tracks in a seemingly unprovoked attack.

As the New York Daily News reports, good samaritans rushed to save the victim, rescuing him from the tracks and alerting an oncoming train to stop.

The victim suffered a number of injuries as a result of the attack, including a concussion, and a deep gash above his eye that required stitches.

According to the New York Daily News, Lacey had been detained for weapons possession, menacing, and harassment days before the attack, but was released without bail.
