A pair of suspected pickpockets threatened to "cut" a subway rider with a razor blade on a 4 train in Brooklyn last month, police said.
The first suspect removed money from a 25-year-old man's pocket onboard the northbound train around 9:40 a.m. on April 24, police said. When the man confronted the pickpocket, police said a second suspect approached him and threatened to cut him with a razor blade.
