Three people were slashed in a morning rush-hour attack at a subway station in Jamaica and a woman is in police custody, authorities said Wednesday.
Two men and one woman were slashed on the arm just before 9 a.m.at the Sutphin Boulevard-Archer Avenue station, authorities said. The attack does not appear to be random and may have followed a dispute between two groups of people, police said. A weapon has been recovered at the scene.
A fire department spokesman says one person sustained serious but non life-threatening injuries. The others had minor injuries. The victims were taken to Jamaica Hospital.
E and J trains had been bypassing the Sutphin Boulevard-Archer Avenue Station in both directions due to police activity, the MTA said, but the stations are now reopened.
