LOWER MANHATTAN — A man was stabbed and beaten on a northbound D train in Lower Manhattan Saturday after a group of people tried to rob him, police said.
Authorities said it happened at around 3:40 a.m., when five individuals approached the man, demanding money. When he refused, two men began punching him, police said.
