Police are searching for a suspect that went on a series of knife attacks throughout New York City subway stations on Sunday afternoon, injuring three women at multiple locations.

The New York Police Department released a photo of the alleged knife slasher and said the suspect is a 5'8 220 lbs black male who was last seen wearing a white t-shirt, dark-colored pants, black sneakers, a Boston Red Sox baseball cap, and a surgical mask during the time of the incident.

A 19-year-old woman was allegedly slashed in the right leg by the suspect at 4:14 pm as she was walking up the platform stairs after exiting a southbound 4 train at the 86th Street-Lexington Avenue subway station, ABC News reports.

The suspect went on to allegedly slash a 48-year-old woman in the right leg as she stood on the subway platform at the same station, according to police.

NYPD said that the suspect fled the scene on a downtown 4 train, and officers received reports a second incident just minutes later.

This time, the suspect allegedly "severely lacerated" a 28-year-old woman as she sat on a southbound 4 train heading toward the Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall. The victim was knifed in the left leg by the suspect, according to police.

Police said that the suspect fled the scene and has not yet been located.

All three victims were transported to local hospitals and treated for their injuries, according to authorities.

This incident follows a series of violent attacks at New York City subways amid an increase in rising crime in the Big Apple.
