WATCH – There’s a devil loose: Deranged homeless man admits to killing Asian woman by pushing her in front of oncoming subway train in Times Square: Shouts at reporters ‘I did it because I’m God’ after being charged with second-degree murder

Simon Martial, 61, is charged with second-degree murder after the Saturday morning incident in Manhattan when a woman was killed at the southbound N, Q, R and W platform at West 42nd Street and Broadway. Police have identified the woman as Michelle Alyssa Go, 40, of Manhattan. The horrifying attack comes as crime in the subway and around the city continues to soar at the beginning of Mayor Eric Adams and Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s first terms. Martial allegedly shoved Go onto the tracks as a southbound R train approached the station in a seemingly random attack. Police found the victim lying on the tracks, unconscious with trauma to her body. Martial has a previous criminal record and served two years in state prison before being released in August 2021. Sources told DailyMail.com that he has also been arrested at least twice in the past for robbery. Martial’s sister, Josette Simon, was shocked and told the New York Post that her brother has a history of mental illness, but had once managed a parking lot and made ‘good money.’
