Nyeema M. Lee, 22, of Jersey City, was charged with aggravated assault and interfering with transportation today, according to Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo.
Just after midnight this morning, Port Authority police were notified that a PATH train conductor on an eastbound train at Exchange Place had been assaulted by Lee, officials said.
The train conductor reported that the suspect was part of a loud disorderly group aboard the train. The conductor stated that Lee had stepped forward from the group and pushed the conductor when the conductor had tried to calm the group, authorities said.
The train was delayed for a short period while interviews were conducted and Lee was arrested. A criminal history check showed the suspect also had an outstanding criminal court warrant from Jersey City, police said.
The victim received medical attention and Lee was transported to Hudson County Jail. Her bail was set at $25,000 with a 10 percent option, officials said.
