Police say the victim was aboard a northbound number 5 train with her 18-month-old son near 42nd Street-Grand Central Station just before 11 a.m., when another woman attacked her.
Police said the victim and the slasher did not know each other and exchanged no words. Police said the victim tried to move her child’s stroller away from the suspect because she thought the suspect was “getting too close,” and that was when she was slashed.READ MORE: Nearly 200 People Being Released From Rikers After Gov.
