Man slashed at 57th Street/7th Avenue
« on: February 27, 2016, 12:49:43 pm »
A man was slashed yesterday morning at the 57th Street/7th Avenue station.

Quote
A 60-year-old man from Mahwah was making his way onto a crowded train around 8:15 a.m. when he got into an altercation with another man, 1010 WINSí Al Jones reported.

Police said the suspect started cursing, sparking the quarrel between the men, CBS2ís Tracee Carrasco reported. At the 57th Street and Seventh Avenue station, serving the N, Q and R lines, the suspect slashed the 60-year-old victim with a small knife in the chin and face before taking off, police said."

I forgot to post the link, here it is.

Unfortunately the slashings will never stop when you have incompetent people such as De Blasio and Bratton saying that NYC is the safest city in the world and crime is down, when ironically, it's not.

But there's data showing that crime is down overall in the city. It's not like the 70's and 80's.
