Ramsey police say the boys, ages 7 and 9, were with their mother and grandmother at a New Jersey Transit station on Monday afternoon when the boys moved toward the platform’s edge to see an approaching train. Authorities say 47-year-old David Howard of Wyckoff soon approached the boys and physically moved them toward the tracks.

The boys’ mother and grandmother quickly intervened and the boys broke free. The women then held Howard for police, and he allegedly spit at one officer while being arrested.

Howard was being held on $500,000 and it was not known if he has retained an attorney.
