A man was randomly attacked with a screwdriver Thursday night on a 1 train traveling through the Upper West Side, a police spokesperson confirmed to West Side Rag.
A 61-year-old man was sitting on a southbound 1 train about 9:40 p.m., when a man walked up to him and stabbed him multiple times in the face with a screwdriver, police said. There was no apparent reason for the attack and the two men did not know each other, NYPD added.
The attacker fled the train at the West 59th Street stop and the 61-year-old man was taken to Mount Sinai West in stable condition with a cut on his mouth and the left side of his head, police said.
There have been no arrests and NYPD did not have a description of the suspect as of Friday afternoon, police said.
