MIDTOWN, New York (WABC) -- Police are looking for a suspect who slashed a man aboard a subway as it approached Grand Central Terminal early Tuesday.

Authorities say the two men got into a verbal argument aboard a northbound No. 6 train around 3:30 a.m., after the suspect allegedly began harassing the victim's wife.

The suspect reportedly pulled a knife from his backpack, and the 40-year-old victim grabbed is and was cut on two of his fingers.

When the train pulled into the station, the attacker fled the station with a green backpack and the knife.

The victim was treated for gashes to his middle and ring finger at Bellevue Medical Center.

No arrests were made.

Subway service was not disrupted by the investigation.
