An incident involving a transgender woman who was pushed onto subway tracks in a New York City subway station is being investigated as a possible hate crime, the New York Police Department said today.

The victim, 28, was on the platform of a southbound 6 train on Lafayette and Bleecker streets when she was approached Monday by a male suspect “acting erratically,” the NYPD said in a statement.

The suspect asked her, “What are you looking at?” police said, adding that he then removed an empty plastic bottle from a garbage pail, which he threw at the victim before pushing her from behind onto the tracks.
