    Question Alarming video shows Israeli tourist slashed in NYC subway

    CBS NEWS April 9, 2016, 9:37 AM

    NEW YORK-- Police have released new surveillance video in connection to a slashing attack on a Israeli tourist in Greenwich Village early Friday morning, CBS New York reports.

    The video shows the struggle between the suspect and the victim shoving one another. A man in an orange sweatshirt can be seen pushing the victim against the turnstile door on the platform of the 6 train at Bleecker Street.

    According to investigators, the victim is a 55-year-old Israeli tourist who only speaks Yiddish. He was wearing traditional Hasidic clothing at the time of the attack.

    The victim was on his way from Brooklyn to visit friends in the Diamond district when he got lost riding the train, Doris reported. He sat down on a bench on the subway platform to look through a map and dozed off.

    At 3:13 Friday morning, police say the victim woke up to the suspect using a knife to cut through his pockets. The suspect then slashed the victim in the face, hands and neck before fleeing with cash.

    The victim was taken to Bellevue hospital in stable condition.

    This is the second slashing at the Bleecker Street station this year. In January, a 71-year-old woman was slashed in the face. Damon Knowles, 21, was charged in the case.

    There's now been more than 1,000 slashings across the city this year, with knife attacks rising at a 24 percent increase compared to last year.

    "They're just reaching out and striking anybody," one commuter said.

    The city has since added more police patrols in subways, stepped up NYPD presence overnight and cracked down on clubs and after hours establishments.

    Police do not believe the Friday morning attack was a hate crime.

    DiBlasio's wrongful concepts and practices have only emboldened criminals and the public less safe. The man, a tourist had no idea that you cannot be alone asleep in a subway station at 3 am in NYC.

    The slashings are particularly ugly - as the video shows an innocent woman walking, a creep sneaks up from behind to slash her OUT OF HATE! Mayor encourages such with his police belittling.
