NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are trying to track down a subway slashing suspect in Manhattan.

The attack happened at the Washington Avenue and West 181st Street station in Washington Heights.

Police said the suspect and 39-year-old victim got into an argument around 4 p.m. on Nov. 21. When things got physical, the suspect allegedly slashed the man with some type of sharp object.

He was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

    New York’s brave police officers will risk their own lives to catch the monster and the judge will put him on probation. And if he does go to prison, the parole board will soon let him out. He’ll be a hardened criminal when he gets out, so the next crime he commits will be a murder.
