About 8:25 a.m. on April 30, the woman was walking on the platform at the Western station at 1900 N. Western Ave., when a man ran up to her from behind and pushed her onto the tracks, according to Chicago Police.

He was wearing a blue parka-style jacket, dark pants and a pair of dark shoes that didn’t match, police said. A more detailed description wasn’t provided.
