MURRAY HILL, Manhattan (PIX11) — A suspect in an unprovoked slashing aboard a Manhattan subway train has been arrested, according to authorities.

Sergio Garvin, 42, is charged with assault in connection to the Dec. 8 attack aboard a southbound No. 6 train at the 33rd Street station near Park Avenue, police said.
