Woman Indicted for Attempted Murder After Pushing Stranger Into Path of Subway Train

According to authorities, Marjorie Chambers, 57 was indicted for attempted murder on Wednesday after she was accused of pushing Stephen Ware, a construction worker into the way of an approaching subway train.

Chambers was charged with a felony rap in the would-be death of Ware, Assistant District Attorney Shanitra Waymire said at the suspect’s hospital arraignment.

According to Waymire, the close deadly push at the Union Square station on Friday was caught on video.

Fast-acting cops pulled the 27-year-old to safety around 12:15 a.m. as a Brooklyn-bound Q train was about to arrive at the busy transit hub.

Ware said he was headed home from work when he was arbitrarily assaulted.

“I was walking straight down the platform toward the L when someone said ‘f–k you’ and just pushed me onto the tracks,” Ware previously told the Daily News. “I landed on my feet and fell over. It was such a flash. I came close to the third rail.”

Chambers was ordered held on $150,000 bond or $100,000 cash bail at her arraignment from Bellevue Hospital which was done by means of a video feed to Manhattan Criminal Court by Judge Kevin McGrath.

Chambers’ attorney Rosemary Vassallo-Vellucci contented that the case might be “overcharged.”

She noted the accused transit nuisance is a mother of four with three grandchildren.

Chambers is next due in court on April 16.
