Woman Slashed With a Knife on 7 Train in Jackson Heights Wednesday: NYPD

Aug. 6, 2020 By Allie Griffin

A 29-year-old woman was slashed with a knife by a man on board a 7 train in Jackson Heights yesterday.

The victim allegedly stood too close to the suspect when she got on the train at around 4:30 p.m. at the 82nd Street station. The man started yelling and kicking her on the Manhattan-bound train.

The woman took out her phone and began recording her attacker, police said.

The situation then escalated further and the man began cursing at the woman and took out a knife that was attached to a lanyard around his neck.

He began swinging the knife at the 29-year-old and slashed her left arm, police said. The woman fled the train at the Roosevelt Avenue stop, while her attacker remained on board.

The victim was cut on the arm, but didn’t require medical attention.

Police describe the attacker as being in his late 20s, with a tall slim build, brown eyes and close-cut short dark hair. He was last seen wearing a blue long sleeve T-shirt, gray shorts and dark grey sneakers.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

If another 7 rider killed him in retaliation this miscreant would get a ticker-tape parade, a key to the city, and a gold coffin.
New York is over.

This is another crazy scary incident on the 7 train. It’s become a scum magnet. Where are the police? We need the NYPD. I used to take the 7 train to commute to work (WFH now) and issues were rare. I shudder having to commute when we’re required to report back to the office.

Why does the Radical Right want everything to be PC?

It’s probably because there’s a photo of him. Are you less offended now?
