MELROSE, the Bronx — A woman was attacked by a man after rejecting his advances in a Bronx subway station Wednesday night, according to police.

The NYPD said the 30-year-old woman and a 28-year-old friend had just gotten off a northbound train at the Jackson Avenue station, along the Nos. 2 and 5 trains, in the Melrose section around 8:30 p.m.

Police said an unidentified man on the platform approached the two women and started making advances, but both women ignored him.

Suddenly, the man slashed the 30-year-old woman in the back with a knife, authorities said.

The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment of minor injuries, according to the NYPD. She did not initially realize she had been slashed, police said.

The man fled the station onboard a northbound No. 5 train, police said.

The NYPD released surveillance images of the suspect. No arrests had been made, as of Thursday afternoon.
