   NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City police have arrested a man in the death of a subway rider who was shoved onto the tracks.


   Police say Naeem Davis was arrested on a charge of murder Wednesday.


   The 30-year-old Davis had been taken into custody for questioning Tuesday. Police say security video showed a man fitting the suspect's description working with street vendors near Rockefeller Center.


   Police said Davis made statements implicating himself in the crime.


   Ki-Suck Han of Queens died after being hit by a train Monday at the Times Square subway station.


   Police say he tried to climb a few feet to safety but got trapped between the train and the platform's edge.


   Davis is in custody and it's not clear if he has a lawyer.
