A New York City A woman who pushed another woman near Times Square on an upcoming subway train was released from jail two months ago without bond because of New York’s 2020 bail reform law.
Twenty-nine-year-old Antonia Egegbara was charged with attempted murder on July 5 for allegedly pushing 42-year-old Lenny Javier to the side of the Times Square No.3 train, and assaulting another woman stranger on July 5. According to the New York Post.

Police ordered him to appear in court on July 19 after being charged with third-degree assault, assault, and harassment and bail on third-degree assault charges and other serious offenses.
Egegbara, who police say is suffering from schizophrenia, was arrested for pushing Javier on a train and has $ 100,000 cash on a $ 500,000 insurance company bond facing charges of second-degree murder, second-degree assault and first-degree attempted murder.

Egegbara can be seen in the video released by the NYPD jumping off the bench and pushing Javier into the train’s first car during Monday morning’s rush. Javier did not fall off the track but instead jumped back and landed on the platform as Egegbara fled.
“My face is swollen, I have a nose broken, a cheek is broken,” Javier told WCBS-TV. “Someone has to take responsibility for this because it can’t be.”

Police say Egegbara has an extensive criminal record dating back ten years, including charges of assault on women aged 18, 40, and 57.
Police officials have expressed frustration over the state’s bail reform laws, including New York Police Department Commissioner Dermot Shea said last summer that there is no “logical answer” to why violent criminals are being released to the streets.
