(LOOPTT) – A 57-year-old Trinidadian woman was stabbed and punched at a Brooklyn subway station on Sunday night in what investigators are treating as a racist subway attack.
Ann Marie Washington was on her way home from work when the incident occurred around 7:30 pm after she had disembarked a Q train at the Church Avenue stop in Flatbush.
The suspect is alleged to have yelled “Black b***h!” before attacking the mother of two.
Washington was punched in the mouth and stabbed in the chest. He fled on a Q train and was still at large on Sunday.
Washington was reportedly hospitalised later that day after undergoing surgery for a collapsed lung.
The NYPD Hate Crimes Taskforce is probing the incident.
