Man with wooden shivs threatens woman on NYC subway
A man wielding two large wooden shivs allegedly threatened to kill a woman on a Manhattan subway train last week, police said Sunday.
The suspect spewed derogatory comments at the 46-year-old victim and made the threats aboard a 4 train near the Lexington Avenue and 59th Street station last Monday at about 7:20 a.m., according to the NYPD.
The man was holding one of the makeshift knives and a second weapon was sticking out of his pocket, according to a photo snapped by the victim.
No injuries were reported during the confrontation and the suspect remained on the loose as of early Monday morning.
The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating.
