A 5-year-old girl was reportedly thrown on the train tracks at a New Jersey Transit Station by a complete stranger, police said.
The girl was then rescued by her mom’s boyfriend and police jumped in front of the train to signal for it to stop, according to reports.
The suspect, Autumn Matacchiera, 20, of Hainesport, was arrested Friday and charged with attempted murder, police said.
The girl suffered bruises and cuts to her face but was expected to be okay, according to reports.
Matacchiera was taken to Lourdes Medical Center for a psychiatric evaluation.
Police said Mataccheira didn't know the girl or her family.
