NYC Subway Suspect Kevin Darden Linked To Earlier Platform Push, Still At Large

Kevin Darden, the violent parolee wanted in connection to the fatal subway platform push of 61 year-old Wai Kuen Kwok is said to be linked to a previous platform pushing incident according to CBS reporter Weijia Jiang.

Darden has a long criminal history with over 30 arrests.

The suspect was identified as homeless thug Kevin Darden — who has more than 30 arrests, including for trying to set his brother’s house on fire.

The 35-year-old vagrant, who has done at least one stint in prison, was most recently arrested Nov. 9 in Midtown for pick-pocketing, sources said.

Darden is the prime suspect in the death of Wai Kuen Kwok, 61, who was randomly pushed in front of a D train at the East 167th Street station in Highbridge at about 8:45 a.m. Sunday as his horrified wife looked on, the sources said.
