Hassidic man stabbed in early morning robbery at Manhattan subway station

A Hasidic man was stabbed in his face and arms during a robbery at the Bleecker Street subway station in Manhattan early on Friday, the New York Daily News reported. The man, who is in his 50s and only speaks Yiddish, was on a south-bound train at 3:30am when an African American man attacked him and robbed him. The robber then ran off, leaving the bloody knife on the train platform. The lightly wounded victim was spotted by two tourists after leaving the station in search of the police. Police were investigating whether the attack was a hate crime, as the victim was dressed in traditional Hassidic clothes.
