Scary subways! Police are searching for a young woman who slashed two random passengers in the face on subways in the Bronx. The first unprovoked attack took place on September 6 on a northbound 4 train at the East 170th Street station at around 4:20 p.m., when the suspect approached a 19-year-old woman and suddenly pulled out a sharp object, sliced the woman in the face, and fled. The second attack came on September 12, at about 3:55 p.m., on the southbound 4 train near Mount Eden Avenue, when the suspect approached an 18-year-old woman and slashed her in the face before escaping.

Police haven't identified the sharp object the slasher is using, but they describe the suspect as Black or Hispanic, between 17 and 25 years old, standing nearly 5’5″ and weighing almost 165 pounds. She was last seen wearing a black hoodie and plastic gloves, and so far authorities have been unable to determine a motive for her seemingly random attacks.

Female straphangers are concerned by the incidents: "That's unbelievable, now everyone has to worry about riding the train," one woman told NBC. "That shouldn't be. Everyone should feel safe on the train." “That’s scary. That’s scary,” another told CBS. “It shocks me it’s a woman, I’d expect it to be a man,” said another.

Both women who were cut were left with "serious injuries," and one woman ended up in the hospital to receive stitches. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or at
