A robber demanding money on a 2 train slashed a passenger yesterday. And it happened at about 1PM, as the train was arriving at the West 72nd Street stop. The robber had been harrassing one rider, when other, Jeffrey Gilbert, told him to stop. The robber turned his attention to Gilbert, asking him for money and the pulled out a box cutter when Gilbert said he had none. The men scuffled, with Gilbert getting cut in the face and the attacker fleeing at West 72nd Street. Jesus, 1PM. the 2 train. The Post calls Gilbert a good samaritan, but the horrible thing is that it almost seems like it's more trouble than it's worth. Be a good samaritan, but rule of thumb: Move along when you see a box cutter.
