A man stabbed with a box cutter in a New York subway station


A man was stabbed with a box cutter during an argument inside a Lower Manhattan subway station early Tuesday, cops and law enforcement sources said.

The victim, believed to be in his 40s, was arguing with another man on a northbound 4 train, cops said.

When the pair got off the train on Wall Street around 6:10 a.m., the assailant attacked his fellow trainee with a box cutter on the stairs, according to cops and sources.

The victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Police were still looking for the attacker later that morning.

The nature of the dispute was unclear.

The incident comes about a week after an ex-cop was slashed by an assailant who first spat on him and his wife at the same station, police say.
