    A teen was cut by a pair of robbers, and a straphanger was stabbed in the latest pair of slashing in New York City this week, police say. 

    In the first incident, Tuesday night aboard an M train in Bedford-Stuyvesant, a straphanger was slashed by a homeless man after an argument.

    The suspect took out a pocket knife and stabbed him in the neck twice before slashing him on the hand.

    The victim walked himself to Woodhull Medical Center and is expected to survive his injuries.

    Police say they found the suspect riding the M train at 2 a.m. with blood on his hands. His identity and the charges he faced weren't immediately available.

    In another slashing incident in Brooklyn Tuesday, two people ganged up on a teen and slashed him in in Cypress Hills at about 10:30 p.m.

    A woman distracted the 18-year-old victim as a man slashed him on Autumn Avenue in Cypress Hills, according to police.

    No arrests have been made in that incident, police said.
