Woman pushed onto CTrain tracks in ‘random’ attack; suspect charged

Calgary police have charged a woman with attempted murder after another woman was pushed onto CTrain tracks Thursday.

Police said at around 2:30 p.m. a man and a woman were waiting on the east side of the Victoria Park/Stampede CTrain platform.

“As a train was arriving at the station, the suspect allegedly approached the woman in her 60s from behind and pushed her onto the train tracks,” police said in a news release Friday.

The train was able to stop in time, police said.

The suspect was taken into custody by a Calgary Transit Peace Officer.

Police said the victim was taken to the hospital in life-threatening condition.

Police say the incident was “random and unprovoked.”

Stephanie Favel, 35, has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, and breach of probation.
