Alyounes admitted that on November 29, 2011, she pushed her boyfriend from a platform less than two feet above train tracks onto the tracks while a train was approaching at a station for New Jersey Transit’s Riverline light rail in Camden. He was not injured and the two boarded the Riverline train. Alyounes acknowledged she went on to beat up the victim while on the train. The assault was filmed by another passenger.
Alyounes was removed by the vehicle by Transit Police at the Riverline station on 36th Street in Pennsauken, and she acknowledged fighting with police on the platform.
She is expected to be sentenced to a term of 120 days in the Camden County Jail and probation.
