NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A woman who allegedly threw bleach in the face of another woman at a subway station in Chelsea Thursday was taken into police custody and arrested Friday afternoon, the NYPD said.

Police identified her as Lakeesha Tyler, 46. She was charged with second-degree assault. 

The hunt for her kicked off after a woman was standing on the northbound 1 train platform at the 14th Street and 7th Ave Station when an unprovoked woman approached her and threw bleach in her face, police said.
