The incident, which occurred around 6 a.m. at the intersection of Broadway and Battery Place, has sent ripples of alarm through the city.

The victim, who was knifed in the leg while standing on the platform, became embroiled in a conflict with three young girls, two aged 15 and one 14, who have been dubbed as “persons of interest” by the police. In a swift response, authorities took the trio into custody, with charges pending against them.

Amid the chaos, sources indicated that one of the 15-year-olds is suspected to be the perpetrator of the stabbing. The woman, whose morning commute took a violent turn, was rushed to NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital and is reportedly in stable condition.
