A woman suffered cuts to her face and hands while being robbed at knifepoint on the 7 train in Sunnyside early Sunday morning.

The victim, 32, got on the subway at the 46th Street–Bliss Street station at around 12:40 a.m. and was then approached by an unidentified man as the train headed toward Manhattan, according to police.

Police say the alleged suspect then shouted at the woman, “Don’t move, give me your money.”

The woman handed over her iPhone 13 before the perpetrator pulled out a box cutter and demanded cash, police said.

The victim then tried to run from the suspect, but he gave chase and a scuffle ensued where the woman was cut on her hands and her face, cops said.

When the train arrived at the 33rd Street station the perpetrator exited and fled, according to police.

The woman, who is of Asian descent, received medical treatment at the scene, police said.

The suspect is described as Black, around 40 years old, and about 5 feet 11 inches tall. He weighs about 200 pounds and was last seen wearing a black jacket and gray hat.
