    A sleeping straphanger was slashed in the face in a SoHo subway station, police say.

    The 26-year-old man was cut on his face about 5 a.m. Tuesday after he woke up to another man trying to steal his wallet at the Spring Street A/C subway station, according to the NYPD.

    The duo then began arguring and the suspect then sliced the victim with a sharp object, police said. He was taken to an area hospital to be treated. 

    Police said the slasher fled the area.
