NEW YORK - A woman suffered multiple puncture wounds and a collapsed lung after a vicious attack inside a Brooklyn subway station.
The NYPD says it happened Wednesday morning on the southbound platform of the "3" elevated train in the Pennsylvania Ave. Subway Station in East New York.
Police say the 60-year-old victim accidentally bumped a man and immediately apologized to him. When she turned to see if the train was approaching the station, police say the man repeatedly stabbed her in the back, shoulder, and arms.
