The robbers fled the subway at W. 28th Street and are currently being searched by the police.

The incident occurred on the 1 Train near 7th Ave. and W. 34th street, when four men armed with a kitchen knife and a switchblade confronted the 39-year-old man and 40-year-old woman. They demanded the man’s wallet, cell phone, and shoes, while the female suspects attacked the woman and tried to snatch her cell phone, repeatedly punching her in the face. Despite holding on to her cell phone, the male victim handed over his wallet and cell phone to the group.

The woman was treated at the scene for her injuries to her face, while the suspects fled empty-handed. NYPD is requesting that anyone with information related to the incident contact their Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.

Subway crime has been a persistent issue in New York City, with many incidents of muggings, assaults, and robberies being reported frequently.

The city’s subway system serves as a primary mode of transportation for millions of commuters daily, making it a prime target for criminal activities. To tackle this issue, the city’s authorities have increased surveillance and law enforcement measures, such as the deployment of more police officers and surveillance cameras across the subway network.

However, the problem continues to persist, with many commuters expressing concerns about their safety while using the subway.

Incidents such as these serve as a reminder for commuters to be cautious and vigilant while using the subway system, especially during late hours or in less crowded areas.
