BROOKLYN, N.Y. – Authorities in New York are searching for a woman who allegedly attacked strangers on a subway.

Police learned about the attack on the downtown A train as it approached the Jay Street Metro-Tech station on Dec. 18.

The alleged attack was caught on camera and the video was obtained by Gothamist.

In the video, the attacker is seen repeatedly confronting subway riders, even though they aren’t speaking to her.

“Do you want to see what happens when I get off this train?” she said. “I’m going to cut you and I’m going to get away with it.”

The alleged suspect goes from posing for the camera to yelling at the other passengers in a matter of seconds.

“You can talk when I get off this train,” she said, as one passenger began speaking to another person.

At that point, WPIX says the woman grabbed a sharp object from her bag and lunged toward the man.

The victims, a 28-year-old woman and a 48-year-old man, suffered cuts to their faces and heads and got off the train.

Now, investigators are searching for clues and the culprit.
