MANHATTAN — A man pushed a woman onto the subway tracks at 14th Street after she yelled at him for groping her early Friday morning, according to police.

The man, who was wearing an orange sweatshirt and dark jeans, approached the 22-year-old woman from behind on the northbound F and M platform at 14th Street at about 4:20 a.m. Friday and touched her chest and groin, an NYPD spokeswoman said.

The woman yelled at him to stop and the man then pushed her onto the tracks, breaking her wrist, the spokeswoman said.

Two good Samaritans jumped down off the platform to help the woman and the suspect fled in an unknown direction.

The woman was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.
