(New York Post) A man was slashed in the face and neck with a box cutter after an argument over a seat on a Manhattan subway train on Tuesday, cops said.
The 43-year-old victim was attacked on a 4 train traveling north near the Wall Street station at about 6 a.m., according to police.
The two men got into an argument over a seat before the suspect allegedly pulled out a box cutter and slashed the victim.
The suspect — who was wearing a black hat and red sweatshirt for the local 1109 union of the Communications Workers of America — fled the train at the Wall Street station and ran south on Broadway.
He then entered the Whitehall Street-South Ferry station where he was caught on surveillance video jumping a turnstile.
