Woman slashed in attack on New York subway station

A group of armed thugs cut a 30-year-old woman in the face in an unprovoked attack at a Chelsea tube station on Saturday morning, police said.

The four or five attackers attacked the victim as she was walking down the southbound stairs at the A/C/E station at West 23rd Street and Eighth Avenue at 8:43 a.m., police said.

The attackers approached her and cut her face, leaving a wound that was treated at the scene, the NYPD said.

In the 10th Ward — which includes Chelsea — transit crime is up 80% through Sept. 4 compared to the same period in 2021, with 18 incidents versus 10, NYPD statistics show.

Serious crimes at the precinct rose 43% that year and homicides rose 200%. As of September 4, there have been three homicides compared to 1 in the same period in 2021.

A tourist leaving the 8th Avenue and 23rd Street subway station in Manhattan with a friend had her throat slashed by an unknown person and the suspect then took $20 from her.
Police have not released photos or videos of the suspects.
