Teen slashed during clash at Upper West Side train station

2019-09-11

A crew of teens attacked a 16-year-old boy after they got into an argument on an Upper West Side train platform, slashing him in the face, arms and chest, cops said Wednesday.

The four teens began quarreling with their victim as he waited for an uptown A train at the 96th St./Central Park West subway station about 1:40 a.m. Monday, cops said.

As the dispute escalated, the teens lunged at the boy with a blade, cutting him multiple times in the face, arms and chest.

The assailants ran out of the station and have not been caught.

Medics rushed the wounded teen to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, where he was treated and released.

No arrests have been made.

The teen is extremely frightened of his attackers and was tight-lipped with cops, leaving police unsure if he knows his assailants or not, sources said.

On Wednesday, cops released surveillance images of the suspects and asked the public’s help identifying them and tracking them down.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential
