2 straphangers slashed at Union Square station

Two people were slashed in the Union Square subway station Tuesday night in the latest frightening subway crime.

The suspect slashed a woman in the face and a man several times around the head on the L-train platform inside the Manhattan subway station around 10:25 p.m., according to police.

The attack left a gruesome scene for fellow commuters as blood spotted the platform and upper mezzanine.

Both victims were taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition.

Outside the station, a man with a bandage wrapped around his head and a blood-drenched shirt was wheeled into an ambulance.

The suspect fled the station in an unknown direction. There have been no arrests.

Police are investigating what led up to the violence. The NYPD wasn’t immediately able to say whether the stabbing was a random, unprovoked attack or if it was caused by a dispute.

The slashing snarled L trains in both directions. Both Brooklyn- and Manhattan-bound trains were running with delays, the MTA tweeted around 11 p.m.
