According to the New York Times, the suspect was Bronx native Kevin Darden. The 34-year-old was found near his mother’s house in the Bronx on Tuesday. During the three-day man hunt, it was revealed that Darden may have shoved another man on a platform:
A 51-year-old man pushed to the platform of the West Fourth Street subway station on Nov. 6, told the police that he had been attacked by the same man who appeared in the video from Sunday.
“You shouldn’t walk in front of me,” the assailant told the man, according to the police, before shoving him to the ground. “I’m warning you.”
The police said investigators believed Mr. Darden was the same person seen on surveillance video walking calmly from the 167th Street station minutes after Mr. Kwok was killed just before 8:45 a.m. Mr. Kwok had been standing on the platform with his wife.
Other details uncovered that Darden might be estranged from his family after an incident with his brother who lives in Texas:
A woman who identified herself as Mr. Darden’s mother said in an interview on Tuesday before his arrest that Mr. Darden had not lived there in months, adding, “He is homeless.” She said she had spoken to detectives and was cooperating with the investigation.
The building’s landlord, Shiouli Rahman, who lives at the adjoining address, said Mr. Darden was one of the woman’s two sons. Mr. Darden’s brother lives in East Texas. In 2011, Mr. Darden was arrested there, according to court records, and charged with pouring gasoline over his brother’s home in an apparent attempt to light it on fire. The case ultimately did not go forward, the local news media reported.
Darden was previously seen on a surveillance camera entering a grocery store after shoving Kwok onto the tracks.
