While major crime in NYC is at record low, transit crimes have risen immensely. The unfortunate trend continued yesterday afternoon when a man was slashed at the Beach 90th Street & station. Andrea Cavallier of Pix 11 has more:
Police are looking for two suspects after a man was slashed at a subway station in Far Rockaway Tuesday afternoon.
It happened around 4:20 p.m. on the A train line at the Beach 90th Street station.
A woman reportedly told police that her husband was jumped by the unidentified attackers during a dispute and slashed. The reason for the dispute is not known.
The man, 31, was taken to the hospital, where he is being treated for injuries to the face and thigh.
Police are continuing to scour the area for the two suspects, a male and a female.
I always hate to hear stories about a subway slashing as such a crime comes across as extremely personal especially when done to the face. Regardless of that, I hope the people responsible for this are caught & face severe consequences for their actions unless details prove they were acting in self defense which I am doubting based on initial reports.
