The 34-year-old man will spend three weeks in custody after allegedly pushing a woman in front of an approaching S-train on July 12th at about 10:30pm, a Frederiksberg judge has ruled. 

The man, who appeared mentally unstable, according to Copenhagen police spokesman Kenneth Jensen, began screaming while two women, ages 19 and 29, stood nearby. Officials say the man first struck the 19-year-old woman before hitting the 29-year-old and shoving her onto the rails just as the S-train was arriving at the station.

The 29-year-old was knocked unconscious when she hit the tracks, police say, but the train was able to throw the emergency brake in time to avoid a collision. 

The women were taken to the hospital and the 29-year-old was admitted, but both have escaped serious injury, Jensen told the Danish newspaper Berlingske. 

Police were unable to establish motive for the attack on Tuesday morning.

The woman was arrested on Saturday and charged with theft and information fraud. There are ten victims in the case.

The police suspect the woman of having stolen from citizens whose homes she has visited as part of her work as a domestic worker in various places in Copenhagen.

“She has worked as a domestic helper and has been in people’s homes as an employee,” Bjarke Dalsgaard, deputy police inspector at Copenhagen police, said.

According to the police, the woman has stolen jewellery and cash on ten occasions. In addition, she has stolen debit cards in four cases and withdrawn money using them. The money that has been withdrawn alone adds up to a value of 52,000 kroner.

Copenhagen police received the first report of theft in the case at the beginning of 2022.

According to the police, the 31-year-old domestic helper admitted to one instance of crime (the theft of around 400 kroner) but pleaded not guilty regarding the remaining 13.
