'Stare down' leads to subway face slashing, suspect at large
The victim was en route to his work when he accidentally bumped another man on the train as it was at the 57th Street/7th Avenue station.
A Friday morning subway slashing has left a 60-year-old man injured while the suspect remains at large.
During the Friday rush hour after 8 a.m., a subway “stare down” aboard a northbound N/Q/R train prompted one passenger to slash the face and hand of another with a pocketknife, ABC has reported.
The victim was en route to his work when he accidentally bumped another man on the train as it was at the 57th Street/7th Avenue station, which began the confrontation that led to the slashing, police said to CBS.
The suspect, described as a man in his 40s, ran into the station before fleeing down West 57th Street, ABC added.
The victim received six stitches at Lenox Hill Hospital, according to CBS, which added that the suspect remains at large.
