Suspect on loose after 2 slashed in Harlem subway station

Two men were slashed in an altercation at a South Harlem subway station Thursday — the latest in a year-long uptick in transit attacks.

The violence erupted after one of the victims got into a dispute with the suspect, who pulled out a knife and slashed the man’s left arm on the 2/3 line shortly before 8 p.m., law enforcement sources told The Post.

As the culprit fled, he slashed a second man in the left forearm before running off, sources said.

The attack happened at the 110th Street and Lenox Avenue station.

Both victims were taken to Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the sources said.

The suspect remains on the loose.

The attack was just the latest in a rash of transit system assaults this year — including an attack on a Harlem straphanger on Monday.

In that case, the 51-year-old victim was waiting for a subway at the West 125th Street and Lenox Avenue station around 6 a.m. when he got into a dispute with his attacker, who slashed him in the neck, police said.

The victim was taken to Harlem Hospital in critical condition.

On Sunday, a 64-year-old man was slashed in the face and hurled over a subway turnstile at the Lexington Avenue and 59th Street station around 5 a.m.

The suspects demanded money and made off with $100 and the man’s cell phone.
