The alleged chronic criminal is accused in the death of Wai Kuen Kwok, 61, on Sunday.
Kwok was with his wife around 8:45 a.m. Sunday when he was shoved from behind onto the subway tracks as the D Train approached the station at 167th Street and Grand Concourse in the Highbridge section of the Bronx.
CBS2’s Ilana Gold reported earlier Monday that police were doing everything they could to track down the suspect.
