Brooklyn — Police are looking for a man who slashed another man across his face with a box cutter in a Downtown Brooklyn subway station Tuesday afternoon, officials said.

The two men got into a verbal dispute on the mezzanine level of the Nevins Street station on Flatbush Avenue about 3:20 p.m. when the suspect attacked the 27-year-old victim, causing a laceration across the right side of his face, FDNY and NYPD officials said. 

The 27-year-old was taken to Methodist Hospital and was expected to survive. 

The suspect — who police said is in his 30s, about 5-foot-8, and was wearing black pants and a blue shirt — was seen fleeing the station before getting into a black sedan that drove off. 

MTA officials said subway service was operating normally at the station.
