A subway rider was slashed in the face when an argument on a Manhattan train turned violent Saturday night, police said.
The victim was attacked by two men he had exchanged words with on the downtown 4 train — getting punched by one and sliced by the other, the NYPD said.
It appears the injured man didn’t know the two attackers prior to the fight, sources said.
When the train stopped at the Grand Central 42nd Street station at around 10:15 p.m., the fight spilled out onto the platform– with other straphangers holding back one of the assailants, who was arrested.
Meanwhile, the other attacker, who was wearing a short blue jacket, took off and was still on the loose early Sunday, according to cops and sources.
The victim was expected to recover.
An MTA worker at the station described the gory scene to The Post, saying that, “They sliced his face. He was bleeding.”
More details were not immediately available.
