Portland Woman Pushes 3-Year-Old Girl, Faces Multiple Charges
A 3-year-old girl was pushed onto the tracks of her MAX at Gateway Transit Her Center near the intersection of Northeast 99th and Pacific Streets in Portland’s Woodland Park neighborhood, TriMet officials said.
Surveillance video from TriMet later showed the three-year-old girl waiting with her mother on a platform near the tracks. Within seconds a woman rose from the bench behind her and pushed her girl onto the railroad tracks. People come to help the girl. They were able to bring her back to her safe place quickly.
Witnesses testified that the train had not arrived when the child was pushed. Portland officials who responded said the girl landed face-first, suffered minor injuries to her forehead, and reported complaining of a headache.

Woman Faces Multiple Charges As She Pushed 3-Year-Old Down A Train Track
According to Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt, the woman, who was later identified as her 32-year-old Brianna Workman, a convicted felon, was taken into custody facing multiple charges of gratuitous assault. I’m here. Workman is currently being held without bail.
KGW looked into Workman’s criminal record and found multiple felony convictions, the most recent being heroin possession in 2013. A more recent conviction was for a misdemeanor. Court documents showed Workman is now homeless.
In June 2021, Portland police arrested Workman after a downtown man said he invited him to his room for breakfast. According to an affidavit of probable cause, Workman said he “had a nervous breakdown” and “fainted.” “I don’t know why I hit him,” Workman was quoted as saying to police. “I tried to kill myself by stabbing him.”
A few days later, the assistant district attorney moved to dismiss that 2021 lawsuit, although the exact reasons are unknown. Workman had a court-appointed attorney who requested disclosure of the case days before his dismissal.
