Another man was slashed on the subway in Midtown.  A 60-year-old man boarded the train just after 8AM Friday at the 57th and Seventh Avenue Station; got into a verbal altercation with another man who slashed his face with a knife. 

The victim is from Mahwah, New Jersey and said the man had a small knife and cut through his chin and face before fleeing the scene.  He continued to work at Chopard Watches on Madison Ave and 63rd where he called 911 and reported the incident. 

NYC stabbings and slashing attacks are up from 503 this time last year to 609 this year.  There have been 15 slashings this year in the transit system up 50 percent over last year.
