The man allegedly shoved the 28-year-old woman onto the subway tracks at 9:40 a.m. Friday morning while she was waiting on the northbound N/Q/R platform in Times Square, police said.

He then took off toward Eighth Avenue and remained at large all day Friday, police said.

The woman was able to climb off the tracks before a train barreled into the station; she was treated for a wrist injury at NYU Langone Hospital, authorities said.

Sarah Feinberg, the interim president of New York City transit, called for more cops to police the subways after the attack.

“This is outrageous, incredibly dangerous, criminal behavior. New Yorkers and NYC Transit employees deserve better,” she said in a statement.

“We police the subways with MTAPD officers and other uniformed personnel and continue to call on the NYPD to have a more significant presence in the system.”

Police identify man wanted for questioning in Times Square subway shove

He has been pushing the envelope for years.

A “person of interest” wanted for questioning in the shocking Times Square subway shove is a career criminal with a lengthy rap sheet who has exhibited bizarre behavior before, according to police and law enforcement sources.

Joshua Diaz, 30, whose last known address is in Mount Vernon, NY, has been arrested 30 times, sources said, including collars for burglary, assault, resisting arrest and criminal trespass.

He was most recently accused of sitting in the cars of strangers in Queens.

Diaz was nabbed Sept. 10 for unauthorized use of a vehicle after he was allegedly sitting in someone’s vehicle in Douglaston, playing music. Four days later he pulled the same stunt, sitting in a different person’s car in Jamaica.

A law enforcement source told The Post that 11 of Diaz arrests have been sealed.

Diaz’ record dates back to 2012, the source said.

But Diaz had not, as of Saturday evening, been charged in the chilling Friday incident in Times Square, in which a woman was suddenly shoved from behind onto the subway tracks, without warning.

Diaz was arrested Friday for resisting arrest, obstruction of governmental administration, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, police said, after he was caught just before 6 p.m. smoking a cigarette on a Bronx subway platform.

He was taken into custody because he fit the description of the wanted photo circulated by the NYPD for the unprovoked attack on the victim, a 28-year-old New Jersey woman, police said, even including the clothes worn by the suspected perp.

“The push is still under investigation,” the NYPD said.

No other information was immediately available.

A source said Diaz was at Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx Friday undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.

It’s unclear if Diaz was still hospitalized late Saturday.

Police are now looking for more witnesses and video of the shoving incident. The victim was waiting on the northbound N/Q/R platform in Times Square, police said.
