Alleged 'Subway Pusher' Naeem Davis Arrested In Death Of Ki-Suck Han
Naeem Davis, 30, has been charged in the death of 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han, after New York City police took him into custody on Tuesday.
Witnesses allegedly saw the two men in a heated argument on the platform of a Times Square subway station. A cell phone video by police shows a man who appears to be Davis pushing Han onto the subway track as the R Train rolled into the station.
The death has been a big national story, especially in New York, for the apparent total lack of help for Han from anyone within the vicinity. R. Umar Abassi, a freelance photographer shooting for the New York Post, was snapping pictures of Han while he was on the track, revealing that no one — including Abassi — came to his aid. Abassi defended himself against critics saying, “There is no way I could have rescued Mr. Han,” in an interview on NBC’s Today show.
Davis was arraigned Wednesday night on a second-degree murder charge and held without bail. He is due back in court on Dec. 11, 2012.
