Authorities say it happened around 9 a.m. Monday as she was standing on the southbound platform at the Bleecker Street station in Greenwich Village.

The man fled the scene.
Police say the woman complained of pain and suffered minor abrasions. She was taken to Bellevue Hospital where she was treated and released.
Police say the woman was assisted by another rider as she attempted to climb onto the platform.
