Two suspects are at large following two separate attacks on New York City subway systems, in which a woman was pushed into the wall of a subway car and a man was cut in the face with a sharp weapon.
According to a report from WABC, a 33-year-old victim said that he was traveling the southbound D train in Manhattan on Friday when he observed another passenger aboard the train acting abnormally.
The victim claimed that the unpredictable person next approached him without warning and "slashed" him on the chin with an unidentified sharp object.
The suspect, who escaped when the train stopped at 53rd Street and Seventh Avenue, is currently being sought by police.
Suspect Fled After Pushing a Woman Into The Side of A Subway Vehicle
A 42-year-old woman was pushed into the side of a standing subway vehicle in Manhattan on Sunday, according to a story from the New York Post, and was then taken to Cornell Hospital.
According to authorities, the suspect apparently fled the station in an unknown direction, and it is yet unclear what prompted the assault.
Daniel Penny Incident
The events occur at a time when violence on city subways is receiving more attention following the contentious death of Jordan Neely, who was acting strangely and posing a threat to other passengers on a train earlier this month when Marine veteran Daniel Penny confronted him and put him in a chokehold.
Second-degree manslaughter was the crime for which Penny was prosecuted in the incident.
Penny stated that he was "deeply saddened" by Neely's passing in his first public remarks following the tragedy, but he accused "the system" of failing New Yorkers.
