Hill was charged with assault and attempted assault.
According to the victim, 32-year old, she said that they had an argument and then Hill attacked her.
“He just kicked me out of nowhere,” She replied. “And I just came tumbling down the escalator, past everyone, all the way to the bottom floor.
“You said “excuse us, that’s New York,” and that was all she said.
“And then out of nowhere, he felt the need to have to kick me down the stairs.
“You know, as if I had the audacity to address him and tell him and say, ‘Excuse me,’ at that moment. He was so mad that he felt compelled to throw me down.”
The victim suffered cuts and bruises but was not seriously hurt, however the incident left her traumatised.
Commissioner Dermot Shea of the New York Police Department tweeted yesterday: “Your New York Police Department Detectives have taken the suspect in this attack into custody.
“My thanks to everyone involved for their diligent work during this investigation.”
