Subway Slasher on the Loose in Manhattan
The New York City police are hunting for a man accused of sneaking up on unsuspecting women and slashing their legs from behind in Manhattan before he disappeared into the subway system.
Police say he slashed three women in separate incidents up and down the subway system between 4 and 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Around 4:15 p.m., police say the first victim was slashed in the right leg from behind at the 86th Street/Lexington Avenue station as she got off a train.
According to the NYPD, the same man slashed a 48-year-old woman’s right leg from behind while waiting for a southbound train, which the suspect boarded before first responders arrived to treat the victims.
Police say the next attack occurred a short time later on the No. 4 train near the Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall station downtown, where a 28-year-old woman sitting in a southbound car was slashed.
She was rushed to the hospital with a “severe” wound to her left leg, police said.
Surveillance images released by the NYPD were taken as he left the scene of the attack downtown, police said.
The suspect jumped over a turnstile to exit the No. 4 train platform at City Hall/Brooklyn Bridge station before he was last seen fleeing through the Chambers Street station, police said. (NYPD)

I guess he’s just another innocent in distress. I’m sure if a hero stepped in to end him @aoc would be all over the news crying for his lost life. She could care less for the real victims. https://t.co/67P6SIdGCd
