Police and sources told The Post that an unruly man was arrested early Sunday after he allegedly trapped a woman in the metro in Queens.
The NYPD said Abdul Nurdeen was masked for the Upper Island attack at Long Island City’s 39th Avenue N train station at 2am.
Police sources said the scuffle erupted when a 27-year-old woman spotted a man in a train at Manhattan’s Lexington Avenue / 59th Street station, stabbing her with a knife.
The man began boarding the train heading to Queens – and the woman got off the train at the next stop, Queensboro Plaza, and downed some cars to get away from it.
But, the creep went after him – and eventually sat right next to him, sources said.
As she walked towards them, she indicated that the man had a knife, which is when she was allegedly “swinging and puffing” at the three women and trying to stab them, sources said. .
According to sources, the woman was able to duck for safety, but both female passengers and a third male stretcher were reportedly hurt during the clash.
Sources said that his injuries were minor and the three refused medical treatment at the scene.
The passengers were eventually able to subdue the person until the police arrived. Sources said the family, later identified as Noordin, was also injured and taken to a nearby hospital.
The NYPD said she was hit with several charges, including two counts of assault.
