Ac­tress ar­rested for try­ing to push woman onto sub­way train tracks

Muscat Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

New York, US - A 35 year old ac­tress who has starred in off-Broad­way shows and played bit parts on TV al­legedly tried to push a stranger on to the path of a sub­way train at Union Square over the week­end.

Keira Kee­ley’s ran­dom tar­get was 57 year old Leonore Gon­za­lez of the Bronx, who was wait­ing on the train plat­form. Kee­ley al­legedly walked up and shoved her from be­hind. Gon­za­lez, how­ever, grabbed a pil­lar and nar­rowly avoided fall­ing from the plat­form onto the tracks.

A po­lice of­fi­cer heard scream­ing on the plat­form, and was told by a wit­ness that Kee­ley in­ten­tion­ally pushed her vic­tim to­ward the tracks as a train was pulling in.

Gon­za­lez ex­plained to cops that she didn’t see Kee­ley move to­wards her, but felt a push and quickly grabbed a pil­lar so that she wouldn’t fall in front of the north­bound train.

Kee­ley, who has no prior ar­rests, was charged with at­tempted as­sault. Her bail was set at US$7,500, which she posted on Mon­day.
