The man who was slashed by a fellow D train passenger apparently tried to follow his attacker out of the train, onto the platform and out of station yesterday morning. A witness said of the victim, "[He] looked like he was OK, just dripping from a lot of blood."

According to police, the victim, a 38-year-old man, and the male suspect got into a physical dispute on a northbound D train at 10:18 a.m.: "During the altercation the suspect cut the victim with a sharp object. The victim suffered lacerations to his face, chest, stomach and hands." The suspect then fled the train at Bryant Park-42nd Street station.

NBC New York reports, "NYPD Assistant Transit Chief Vincent Coogan said witnesses told police they couldn't tell what they were arguing about. Police say they don't believe the two knew each other but may have both boarded the train at West 4th Street." The news station also obtained video showing the victim walking around the station:

The suspect was described as 30 to 40 years old, 6'0" to 6'5" and 230 to 240 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark colored long sleeved shirt and dark colored pants, and the NYPD released surveillance footage of him:
