Police have arrested a Lower East Side street vendor, charging him in connection with the beating death of a man on the Delancey Street subway platform a week ago.

The crime happened August 28, shortly before 10 p.m. When cops arrived at the station, they discovered 51-year-old Alfredo Ramos badly beaten with severe head injuries. The victim, a New Jersey resident, died on Thursday at Bellevue Hospital.

According to the Daily News, 57-year-old David Green was later taken into custody and charged with manslaughter. He was awaiting arraignment this morning. Green is described as an incense vendor who operates outside the subway station. No details yet as to what led to the dispute between the two men.
