March 7, 2022 By Christian Murray

A 37-year-old man who was coming to the aid of a woman who was being robbed inside of the Court Square station Thursday was slashed with a sharp object, police said.

The incident took place at around 7:30 a.m. when a woman snatched a female rider’s cellphone and then punched her in the face.

The Good Samaritan came to the victim’s assistance before a man who was accompanying the thief pulled out a sharp object and slashed him in his wrist.

The pair then fled the location.

The female victim did not seek medical treatment, while the man was transported by EMS to NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst in stable condition.

Police released photos of the suspects.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Adams failed 2019 Deblasio cloned plan to curb crime does not seem to beworking. Big Surprise as No plan Deblasio had ever worked. Worst mayor ever And Bloomberg a close second. At least less crime under Bloomberg.
DeBlasio was a Democratoc Marxist.No much will work Eric Adams intil No Bail law is changed. Adams tried and C. Heastie & A. Stewart- Cousins will not change their minds. So Adams gets mad at white reporters asking tougj questions. He is the wrong man for the job. Sliwa was the best man for the job. Keep voting Democats in and watch NYC and state fall apart even more than it has already.
