Man Slashed by Fellow Straphanger Onboard L Train: NYPD

Nov. 18, 2019 By Allie Griffin

A 51-year-old man was slashed across his face by a fellow straphanger onboard a southbound L train earlier this month.

The 51-year-old was arguing with the male suspect on the L train on Nov. 8 at 10:15 p.m. when their dispute turned physical. When the train reached the Lorimer Street station, the individual slashed him across his cheek and run off the train, police said.

The victim was transported to Woodhull Hospital, cops said.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Let’s see?? this is Brooklyn right?? What jail time will covet if get caught?? Nothing tickets for the knicks and food vouchers for juniors and the sugar hill supper club.

Trump lovers are gullible enough to believe this

supper club? Do you know what you’re commenting on?


The boomer joke is funny. Funnier still is the millennial overpaying to live in neighborhoods that are turning to crap, and where they’re the easy prey.


Why aren’t there more police presence on the L train the crime on that train has gone way up, years ago this train was deserted but safe. Now all you here is crime As a woman who has ridden the L train for 50 + years I now am hesitant to travel very early in the morning or after 7pm it’s ridiculous
