4 unruly teens hit, slash man on NYC train: cops

Four teens wearing ski masks punched and slashed a straphanger who confronted them on a train in Upper Manhattan this week, police officers said on Friday.

The 48-year-old victim was traveling northbound on a B train around 4:20pm on Wednesday when he got into an argument with the rowdy group of teenagers, believed to be around 16 or 17 years old, said the police.

During the confrontation, one of the teens stepped on his foot, and the straphanger called him out, police officers said.

The group of suspects then punched the driver in the face and arms – and cut him in the forehead with an unknown sharp object, police said.

The four perpetrators got off the train at Cathedral Parkway in Morningside Heights.

The crew disembarked at Cathedral Parkway-110th Street in Morningside Heights, police officers said.

Video released early Friday shows the teenagers wearing ski masks exiting the station through the turnstile.

The victim was taken to the BronxCare Health System where she was treated and discharged.

The incident came days after a man unreasonably punched a 37-year-old female MTA booth attendant in Brooklyn; and a week after a 45-year-old woman was cut in the face during an argument at a Bronx station, police officers said.
