NOHO, Manhattan – An Orthodox Jewish man was slashed on a NoHo subway platform in a possibly random attack Friday morning.
The victim, in his 50s, was slashed in the neck and hand on the No. 6 platform of the Bleecker Street station at Lafayette Street just before 3:30 a.m.
He is in stable condition at Bellevue Hospital.
The victim was wearing traditional Hasidic clothing and is believed to be from Israel. He was spotted by passersby walking up the subway steps, bleeding from his wrists.
The suspect fled the scene and no arrests have been made.
Detectives brought in K9s to search for evidence and pinpoint the location of the attack.
The investigation is ongoing. Due to the investigation, southbound No. 6 subways are bypassing Bleecker in both directions.
In January, a 71-year-old woman was slashed on a train as a suspect approached the Bleecker Street station. She sustained a non-life threatening injury.
