Cops Looking For Female Subway Slashing Suspect

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Police are looking for a female suspect wanted in two assaults that took place on subway trains in the Bronx.

A 19-year-old woman, who was sitting on a northbound 4 train entering the station at East 170th Street, was approached by the suspect and slashed in the face with an unknown object.

It happened on Sept. 6 at around 4:30 p.m. Authorities said the victim suffered “serious physical injury.”

The second incident took place on Sept. 12 at around 4 p.m. on a southbound 4 train that was entering the station at Mt. Eden Avenue. An 18-year-old victim was also slashed in the face with an unknown object.

“It shocks me it’s a woman, I’d expect it to be a man,” one woman told CBS 2’s Dave Carlin.

“It’s definitely something with a gang,” said Bebay Sibidey, of Inwood.

The suspect is described as a black or Hispanic female, between 17 and 25 years old, between 5-foot-2 and 5-5 and 155 to 165 pounds with a light to medium complexion.

Police said the suspect was last seen wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt, clear plastic gloves and a thick green colored bracelet on her wrist.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto Crime Stoppers’ website at or by texting their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577.

    To the Slasher: You are now a FUGITIVE. You had better climb on a Spacecraft and head for the MOON. If you stay on Earth they’re going to hunt you down and take you down just like the animal that you are. SpaceX gonna give it to ya.

    The victims should be allowed to reciprocate and disfigure their attacker.
