PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh man has been charged with attempted homicide, ethnic intimidation and other crimes for allegedly throwing a black man onto the tracks at a commuter rail station downtown.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 21-year-old Ryan Kyle. Police have charged three other men - two with allegedly helping Kyle to rob the victim, Kevin Lockett - who tells KDKA-TV he was so badly hurt in the Saturday night attack that he doesn’t remember some of it.

Police say Kyle and the others boarded a light-rail train and encountered Lockett, who says the men shouted curse words and derogatory terms before Kyle allegedly threw him onto the tracks.

The others have not been charged with ethnic intimidation. The Associated Press could not immediately locate a telephone number for Kyle who faces a preliminary hearing June 17.
