The NYPD says a 71-year-old woman is in stable condition after she was slashed on the face while riding a subway train in Manhattan.

Police say the southbound 6 train was approaching Bleecker Street around 7:15 a.m. Monday when a man sitting across from the woman got up and slashed the left side of her face with an unknown object.

They both got off the train when it stopped. The suspect fled on a southbound train and is still being sought.

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
