Crown Heights Shomrim told Anash.org that the incident took place on Tuesday night in the subway station on Eastern Parkway and Schenectady.
“A black man pulled out a knife and threatened to stab a Jewish male who is the station at the time,” they said. “Baruch Hashem, he was able to escape unharmed.”
