Filipino man's face slashed in New York subway attack

A Filipino man needed almost 100 stitches on his face after he was slashed by another passenger on the New York City subway.

According to a Sunday 24 Oras Weekend report, 61-year-old Noel Quintana, who is based in New York, was on the subway when he noticed that his bag was being kicked by another man.

When he confronted the "kicker,"  the suspect suddenly pulled out a box cutter and slashed Quintana's face. 

No one came to the Filipino's assistance.

The attack was recorded on CCTV, but no further details were immediately available.

Quintana was also reported to have been mugged in a prior incident when he alighted the subway at a Manhattan station last year. Jon Viktor Cabuenas/DVM, GMA News
