Duo beat, slash man at Prospect Park subway stop

Duo beat, slash man at Prospect Park subway stop
Wanted: Cops are hunting a man and woman wanted for the pre-dawn attack of a straphanger waiting at the Prospect Park Subway Station on Oct. 2.

A brute and his razor-wielding accomplice beat and slashed a man in an early morning attack at Prospect Park station in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens on Oct. 2, police said.

The 21-year-old victim told police he was waiting to catch a pre-dawn Q train at the stop near Lincoln Road at 5:15 am, when a balding, 6-foot man approached him, and the two “exchanged words” before the brute punched him, police said.

As the victim grappled with the follically challenged foe, a woman crept up from behind and slashed the young man with a box cutter, cops said.

The victim made his way to a nearby hospital after the attack, where he was treated for a variety of nasty gashes on his head, chest, face, and hands, according to police.

Investigators have released surveillance-footage stills of two suspects, and are hoping locals can offer some information to help them track the duo down.
