A 29-year-old photographer became the latest New Yorker to be pushed on subway tracks Sunday when he was attacked at a Brooklyn station.
The victim was in a northbound 4-train shortly before noon. 11.30am when his attacker who had been asleep woke up and started screaming at him, police said.
It was unclear what the suspect was screaming, police said.
