A man was slashed in the face following an argument early Tuesday morning on an Upper West Side train, a police spokesperson told the West Side Rag.
A 22-year-old man was riding a northbound A train about 1:30 a.m. near the West 72nd Street and Central Park West station, when he was slashed in the forehead with a boxcutter, police said.
NYPD told the Rag that the slashing occurred after an unspecified verbal fight between the man and another person on the train.
The suspect fled the train at the 72nd Street station, while the injured man continued on until 96th Street, where he received medical attention, PIX11 reported.
He is expected to survive, police added.
There have been no arrests and NYPD did not have a description for the suspect.
Anyone with information in regard to these incidents is asked to call the NYPD’s CrimeStoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
