    Man Slashed In Back While Entering Subway Near Penn Station

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A man was slashed in the back in broad daylight Friday afternoon as he entered the subway near Penn Station.


    The 51-year-old man was at the base of the stairs walking into the 34th Street-Penn Station No. 1, 2 and 3 subway station at Seventh Avenue around 3:10 p.m. when he was attacked, 1010 WINS’ Al Jones reported.


    The man said he passed two panhandlers and refused their request for money, and felt a cut on his back as he made his way down the stairs.


    Officers were looking for two people, a man and a woman, who appeared to be panhandlers, police said. The victim said he believes one of the two was behind the slashing, CBS2’s Lou Young reported.

    The man and woman fled on foot, police said.



    The victim found his own way to Mount Sinai West Hospital, where he was treated and released, police said.

    Commuters late Friday did not seem especially concerned, and were acting the way they usually do.

    “Cost of living here,” one man said at the station. “If it never happens to you, it never happens to you. If it does, then it’s a problem. Otherwise, you just keep riding the train and get to work.”

    the cops were all over the tracks yesterday. First time in a long time that there were more cops than army soldiers in the subway there.
