Machete slashings and killings have skyrocketed in NYC. The attacks are all random and have mostly taken place on the subway. The most horrific was the recent hacking of a grandma in the hallway of her apartment building. Note how the reports all say the people are crazy but is this just a convenient alibi for what are evil attacks plain and simple.
Police are looking for a madman who slashed a woman’s hand on a Brooklyn train Tuesday night and threatened to chop her up — the third slashing attack within 48 hours.
Cops were called to a 3 train at the Atlantic Ave. station around 9:30 p.m. for reports of an assault and found the 29-year-old victim with a cut up hand.
The distraught woman told police the suspect, a stranger to her, told her “I will chop you up on this train” before he started hitting her with an object wrapped in cloth. The woman said the object appeared to be a machete.
