QUEENS — A straphanger was slashed across the face as he fought a man in a sweater emblazoned with the phrase "Coke Boys" in the Beach 90th Street subway station, NYPD officials said.

The man, 30, was arguing with the suspect about 4:10 p.m. on April 18 in the station when the suspect pulled a sharp object and started cutting his face, neck and forearm, police said.

The victim was treated for the slash wounds at Jamaica Hospital, where he's listed in stable condition, police said.

The suspect, who can be seen in police footage released Wednesday morning, is about 5 feet 6 inches, 160 pounds, police said.

He was last seen in a black sweater with red sleeves emblazoned with the phrase "Coke Boys" across the chest, police said.
