Cousins! The New York Police Department is currently conducting a manhunt search for a suspect identified as brutally attacking a total of three women from behind in under 20 minutes!
According to Fox News, a male is said to have gone on a violent slashing spree on Father’s Day within various Manhattan train stations beginning between the hours of 4 and 5 PM. He is said to have snuck up on his victims, swiftly slashing their legs from behind, and then quickly disappearing into the subway system.
Reports read that the first victim was attacked around 4:15 PM on her right leg from behind at the 86th Street/ Lexington Avenue station as she exited the train.
Officials state a few minutes later a 48-year-old woman was slashed on her right leg from behind as she waited for a Southbound train. He is said to have taken off on the train before first responders arrived.
The NYPD says the next attack took place in less than twenty minutes on a NO. 4 train within the downtown area of a Brooklyn Bridge/ City Hall station. A 28-year-old woman says she was targeted while sitting in a southbound car and that he had followed her from behind unknowingly as she made her way up the staircase.
The woman was rushed to a nearby hospital for a severe wound to her leg.
Fox reports the subway slasher was captured on surveillance footage hopping a turnstile to exit the station. He was then seen running through another subway station located at Chambers Street before he ultimately disappeared.
A photo shows the suspect jumping over a turnstile while wearing a Boston Red Sox hat and a white T-shirt with an orange-and-yellow cartoon character on the front. The male is described as 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing around 220 pounds. He is said to have short black hair and was wearing a powder blue and white medical face mask pulled over his chin with blue pants and black sneakers.
