NEW YORK (AP) - A woman has been arrested and charged for allegedly stabbing a subway rider in the thigh.

Police say it happened on a southbound No. 5 train at the 86th Street station at around 11:30 a.m. on Saturday.

They say the suspect, Nicole Brown, stabbed the victim with a sharp object after the 26-year-old New Jersey woman sat beside her.

The Daily News (https://nydn.us/24Fwtzq ) reports that both women got off at the 59th Street and Lexington Avenue station where the victim flagged down a police officer.

Police arrested Brown and charged her with felony assault.

The victim required stitches to close the wound.

Police have not recovered the weapon.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Brown had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
