Police say a woman suffered serious injuries after being pushed onto the tracks in front of an oncoming train in New Westminster, B.C.

Officers, along with ambulance and fire personnel, arrived to find a 32 year old woman trapped beneath a train at a SkyTrain station.

Police say the woman was conscious when she was freed and suffered non life threatening injuries.

A 24 year old man was arrested at the scene but released and police say the investigation is continuing.

Acting Insp. Andrew Perry says interviews with witnesses and the suspect as well as a review of SkyTrain video revealed the woman had a physical altercation with someone on the platform.

Perry says police would like to speak with others who were at the scene and anyone who comes forward will be supported by the department's Victim Assistance Unit.
