BROOKLYN — A woman slashed a man's arm with a razor during a fight on an M train Monday evening, police said.

The 50-year-old man was on his way home from work when he and his attacker began shoving each other at the Essex Street station about 6 p.m., the NYPD said.

The two got onto the train, but continued arguing until the woman, who can be seen in a police photo released Tuesday, pulled out the blade and sliced his arm, according to police.

The victim snapped a photo of his attacker before she hopped off at the Hewes Street stop, police said.

EMS treated him at the scene, police said.

The slasher is about 40, 5-foot-6 and 150 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes, police said.

She has several tattoos on her arms, neck and face, police said. She was last seen wearing a black and gray Orlando Magic cap, a black T-shirt, jeans and black sneakers.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
