The alleged assault occurred Thursday evening in Brooklyn as the man in the video is seen walking past the victim on an escalator out of the Atlantic Ave-Barclays Center Station, a typically busy subway stop.

The man kicked the 32-year-old woman in the chest, causing her to fall down the escalator, the New York City Police Department said Monday. The video shows the man graze the woman as he walks past her up the escalator before he stops and turns around. He is then seen grabbing both handrails before kicking her.

The man and woman had “a verbal exchanged that escalated” when he kicked her, police said.
