Woman slashed, another punched in Brooklyn subway station


A woman was lacerated in the cheek and another woman was punched in the face by an assailant at a Brooklyn subway station on Wednesday night.

The wave of unprovoked transit violence occurred inside the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station on the 2-3-4-5 lines around 6 p.m., police said.

The male suspect first cut a 30-year-old woman on the left side of her face with a razor as she stood on the platform of the northbound 5 train, police said.

The man then went to the mezzanine level of the station and punched a 47-year-old woman in the face, which left bruises, the NYPD said.

The suspect, who police said was in his 40s and was wearing black with dreadlocks, then fled the station. No arrests were made.

The attack happened around 6 p.m. Wednesday evening.
