One woman slashed, another punched in Brooklyn subway station

A woman was cut on the cheek and another woman was punched in the face by a male assailant at a Brooklyn subway station on Wednesday night.

The wave of unprovoked transit violence occurred at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station on the 2-3-4-5 lines around 6 p.m., police said.

The male suspect first hit a 30-year-old woman on the left side of the face with a razor while standing on platform 5 north, police said.

The man then went to the station’s mezzanine floor and punched a 47-year-old woman in the face who left bruises, the NYPD said.

The suspect, who police said was in his forties and wearing all black with dreadlocks, then fled the station. No arrest has been made.

Police have released a photo of the suspect.
