A 32-year-old man was slashed and robbed on the #1 train as it approached the 103rd Street station, at around 2:50 a.m. on Monday, police told West Side Rag.
The victim reported that he was approached by a man in his 30s, who demanded money. When he refused, the perpetrator slashed him in the left arm and left thigh, then fled the train at 125th Street, with $40 of the victim’s money. The victim continued to 137th Street, where he disembarked and called the police. He was taken to Harlem Hospital and is in stable condition.
