A weapon-wielding woman in a bright yellow coat slashed two straphangers on a Queens-bound A train on Friday evening, according to police and a footage of the incident.
The lady got into a verbal spat with a 28-year-old woman and a 48-year-old guy as the train was approaching Jay Street MetroTech at around 7 pm, police said. She then pulled a “sharp object” out of her purse and threatened to cut the man if he spoke, according to footage captured by a witness and uploaded to Gothamist.
“Do you want to see what’s going to happen when I get off this train? I’m going to cut you, and I’m going to get away with it,” she said in the clip. “Now if you say one more word, it’s going to end very badly.”
After the woman further threatened to knife the guy if he spoke — while simultaneously following and goading him — she lunged at him and the other woman and a tussle ensued, the video appears to show. The attacker nicked both victims’ faces with her blade in the melee, according to a police report.
The woman got off the train at the Nostrand Avenue stop and fled, authorities said.
Now, police are on the hunt for the A-train assailant. They say she is around 30 years old, 6-foot tall, and 180 pounds, with black hair. She was last seen wearing a sheer black blouse, black pants, black shoes, a yellow coat, and a red purse, cops said.
