Police say Doss pushed a 48-year-old woman onto the tracks at the Belmont station last Friday.

The woman says she saw him urinating and asked him to stop. The man then pushed her from behind.

She suffered serious injuries in the attack.

Doss was taken into custody on Tuesday after CTA personnel identified him as the attacker.
