NEW YORK (AP) – The homeless man charged with shoving a man to his death as a train barreled into a Times Square subway station says the victim instigated the confrontation.

Naeem Davis, 30, was arraigned Wednesday night on a second-degree murder charge and ordered held without bail in the death of 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han on Monday.

As he walked past reporters, Davis said, “He attacked me first. He grabbed me.”

Prosecutor James Lin told the judge that Davis watched the train strike Han before leaving the station.

But Davis’ Legal Aid lawyer, Stephen Pokart, said outside court that his client reportedly “was involved in an incident with a man who was drunk and angry.”

Davis is due back in court on Dec. 11.
