A 62-year-old man was injured after being pushed onto the tracks of the New York City subway on Sunday, just days after a woman was killed after she was shoved in front of an oncoming subway train.

The man, whose name has not been released, was approached from behind and pushed onto the southbound train tracks at the Fulton subway station in Lower Manhattan at 11:20 a.m., according to a statement from the New York Police Department (NYPD).

The victim then climbed onto the platform and was taken to a hospital with a leg laceration. He was brought to the New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, according to The Washington Post.

The suspect fled the scene and no arrests have been made in connection to the incident, according to the NYPD. An investigation is ongoing.

The incident occurred just over a week after 40-year-old Michelle Alyssa Go was killed after being pushed onto the tracks before an oncoming train.
