New York (CNN) — A woman wanted in connection with the death of a man shoved in front of a subway train this week is in custody, New York police said Saturday.

The woman made “statements implicating herself in the death of Sunando Sen,” said Paul Browne, the New York Police Department’s chief spokesman.

Witnesses said a woman paced the platform and talked to herself shortly before pushing the man onto the tracks as the 11-car train entered the station.

The man’s body was pinned under the second car after it came to a stop.

Police had described the culprit as a heavyset woman in her 20s, wearing a ski jacket and sneakers. Security video shows a person running from the scene shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday.

Sen, 46, of Queens had owned a shop called New Amsterdam Copies and was a graphic designer for posters, said Ar Suman, Sen’s roommate.

In early December, Ki-Suck Han, 58, was shoved onto the tracks in a Times Square station as a train approached.

Naeem Davis, 30, a homeless man, has been charged with second-degree murder in that case.
