Reid was charged late Friday with attempted murder as a hate crime, and second- and third-degree assault as a hate crime.

Sources told CBS2 Reid was placed in a straitjacket because he was allegedly hostile during questioning.

The suspect was found by police on the No. 6 line at Canal Street shortly before midnight, 1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa reported.

Sources told CBS2 he was wearing the same clothes he was seen wearing on surveillance video at the time of the incident and when questioned by police, threatened “I’m going to push you guys on the tracks.”

The incident happened around 9 a.m. Monday at the Bleecker Street subway station.

The 28-year-old victim was on the platform waiting for the southbound No. 6 train when a man acting erratically walked up to her, police said.

Surveillance video shows a man in a light blue shirt and khakis reach into a trash drum and pull out a plastic bottle. This happened after he said, “What are you looking at?” to the woman, police said.

After throwing the bottle, the suspect pushed the victim from the platform onto the tracks, police said.

Good Samaritans pulled her to safety before a train reached the station.

The victim suffered cuts, bruises and broken teeth and was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center, where she was treated and released, police said.

Police are treating the incident as a possible bias attack because the victim is transgender.
