A 51 year old woman is currently listed in stable condition at the hospital after being stabbed in an attempted robbery. The incident took place at the 169th St. station on the F train. According to police, the woman was standing on the northbound platform waiting for an F train when a man approached her. The man attempted to snatch her handbag but was met with a resistance. As she continued to fight back, the man took out a weapon & stabbed her in the head & shoulder. Thankfully the 32 year old man was arrested & charged with assault, robbery, & criminal possession of a weapon in the attack.

This now explains the service alert I saw on the MTA’s website about a police investigation.
