NYPD makes arrest in latest unprovoked subway attack as mounting feud between mayor and district attorney heats up


Update: According the the New York Post, NYC Mayor Eric Adams said that, “the bad guys no longer take them seriously.” as he spoke about NYC prosecutors and judges. He went on to say, “They believe our criminal justice system is a laughingstock of our entire country.” The NYC district attorney, Alvin Bragg has reportedly been paying close attention to the recent recall vote which removed the San Francisco district attorney from his post amid similar city-wide circumstances.

Cops on Tuesday arrested a man they believe shoved a 52-year-old woman onto the tracks of a Bronx subway station in a stunning unprovoked attack caught on camera.

Theodore Ellis, a 33-year-old Williamsbridge resident, faces charges of first-degree assault and reckless endangerment for the Sunday afternoon attack at the Jackson Ave.- Westchester Ave. station, police said.

A police source said Ellis made incriminating statements.

The source also said Ellis and the victim had previously argued, but that the suspect couldn’t remember what made him angry “and didn’t realize his own strength when he pushed her.”

Ellis was arrested at the subway station after a station agent told police officers he recognized the suspect’s picture on a Crime Stoppers flyer and often saw him selling MetroCard swipes there.

The suspect, who wore a white T-shirt and red backpack, was caught on video shoving a woman onto the train tracks.

The victim, believed to be homeless, was not struck by a train but suffered a broken collarbone in the fall, cops said. She was pulled back onto the platform and taken to Lincoln Hospital, where she was in stable condition Tuesday.

Ellis’ arrest record dates to 2006 and includes charges of grand larceny, robbery, assault and animal abuse, police said. His most recent assault was in May 2021 for another alleged assault.
