BRONX NEWS: Bronx actress cuffed for attempting subway train shove: police


A Bronx actress tried to shove a woman into the path of a Union Square subway train, police said Monday.


Keira Keeley, 35, was busted around 12:15 a.m. Saturday, accused of walking up to the 57-year-old victim in the Manhattan station about a half-hour earlier and pushing her, cops said.


The victim didn’t see her attacker, but she felt the shove from behind and grabbed a pillar to prevent herself from falling, sources said.


A police officer heard screams and rushed over, police sources said, and a witness pointed Keeley out.


Keeley told detectives she and her boyfriend had spent the night at the 12th Street Ale House, where she drank four glasses of wine, the sources said. She said she felt “wiggly” and buzzed, but denied pushing the victim.


Keeley’s theater resume includes off-Broadway performances in “Angels In America: Parts 1 & 2” and, in 2013, “How to make Friends and Then Kill Them.”


She was arraigned Saturday on a felony attempted assault charge and released on ,500 bail Monday.


No one answered the door at her Bronx apartment Monday night, and her phone was set to block incoming calls.


Attempts to reach the victim, also a Bronx resident, were unsuccessful Monday night.
