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.
