A woman went berserk on a packed Manhattan subway train Monday morning and stabbed a female stranger apparently at random, authorities said.
The crazed suspect, 32, stabbed the victim in the shoulder and abdomen on an uptown 6 train as it approached the 59th St. station about 10:05 a.m., officials said. The attacker also punched at least one other person, cops said.
“She was crazy,” an MTA employee who witnessed the attack said of the stabber, who appeared to be in her 20s.
“She was just targeting random people. She stabbed a woman in the shoulder and stomach with a steak knife.”
A good Samaritan grabbed the suspect and dragged her from the station to Bloomingdale’s, which has an entrance at the subway level, witnesses said.
