The man accused of pushing a New York City subway straphanger onto the tracks to his death allegedly confessed to the crime-but said on Wednesday that the victim had threatened him first.
“He attacked me, he grabbed me,” Naeem Davis, 30, reportedly told police.
Davis pleaded not guilty to the murder of Ki Suk Han, 58, who was struck by a subway train on Monday after allegedly being pushed onto the tracks by Davis.
Davis also claimed Han was drunk and brandished something resembling a knife.
Assistant District Attorney James Lin told the judge that Davis watched Han get struck by the train and then calmly picked up his coat and coffee cup and exited the station. Read more at New York Post.
