Man accused in New York City subway killing has Beaver County ties


NEW YORK - The man accused of pushing another man to his death in a New York City subway once lived in Beaver County, where police arrested him 10 times between 1999 and 2003, court documents show.

Naeem Davis, 30, had addresses in New Brighton, Ohioville and Beaver Falls. Police arrested him on charges of theft, burglary and vandalism and court records show he spent time in the county jail and state prison.

In one case, Beaver Falls police charged him with trying to sell three laptops stolen from police cars in 2002.

Police also charged him with breaking into several homes and stealing computers, cellphones and other items.

Davis’ family members did not respond to a knock on the door for comment. One man going into and out of the New Brighton home did not acknowledge reporters standing outside.

New York police on Wednesday charged Davis, whom they described as homeless, with second-degree murder and related offenses.

Police said he got into an argument with Ki-Suck Han, 58, of Queens on a subway platform and pushed Han onto the tracks. A subway train struck and killed Han.
