One of the suspects took the blade to the right side of the man's face, right ear and left abdomen. The trio then fled the station.

The assault is the latest in a string of slashings inside subways stations across the city. Earlier this month, a 22-year-old woman was slashed above the eye and in the wrist on a northbound 2 train on the Upper West Side. A second victim tried to intervene and was slashed in the left ear.
Last month, police identified three teens wanted in connection with a series of slashings, beatings, and robberies that unfolded early on the 4, 5, 6 subway line.
The pack of teens roamed the subway in Manhattan and assaulted several people, wounding some with a knife, NYPD officials said.
