Police are looking for a suspect they say slashed a subway rider in the face early Friday morning at a Lower Manhattan subway station, according to published reports.

At around 5:10 a.m., according to the New York Post, the victim was waiting on the platform for the A train at the Chambers Street station when he was approached by a man asking for money.

When the victim refused, the suspect then allegedly slashed him across the face, the New York Post reported.

According to CBS2 New York, the victim left the station and later called 911 from his job. He also refused medical attention on the scene after suffering a minor cut.

Police described the suspect — who is still at large — as 5 feet 8 inches tall and last seen wearing a black shirt and blue jeans, according to the New York Post.

This slashing comes just a day after a woman claimed that she had been called a “terrorist” in a slashingnear Trinity Church on Broadway by Wall Street.

However, later that evening the 20-year-old student admitted that she had sliced her own cheek and was then taken for a psychiatric evaluation.
