A man was left bloodied after being pushed onto the tracks at Grand Central Station in Manhattan on Thursday, by a one-armed suspect still at large.

The incident happened on Platform 7 of the station just after 4 p.m., police said Thursday, after the suspect got into a physical fight with the unnamed 51-year-old victim.

The fight quickly escalated and the suspect pushed the man onto the rails before fleeing. The assailant was described as a black man, wearing a yellow shirt and beige and black trousers, and having only one arm, by DailyMail.com photographer Peter Gerber, who was at the scene .

Fortunately, the victim was able to free himself from the rails before being hit by a train.

He was not seriously injured but suffered lacerations to his forehead and cheek in the fall. Cops said he was treated for those injuries on the rig.

The brazen attack at one of the city’s busiest stations took place just as rush hour dawned – but it did little to impede straphangers’ journeys.

Police have yet to reveal what sparked the latest brazen attack on the city’s subway system, but did say the victim did not know the suspect.

They added that the suspect fled while his victim was still on the trail.

Cops have yet to release surveillance video of the attack. An investigation is currently underway.

The incident could have been the latest in a string of subway-related deaths in The City That Never Sleeps, which has seen its crime rate rise since the start of the pandemic – many of which occur in the transit system in city ​​common.

Last week, a man was arrested in Queens after taking a subway ride that saw two stabbed – one in the face – just a day after being released from jail for carrying an illegal knife.

The suspect, Donny Ubiera, 32, randomly stabbed commuters in separate incidents Friday and Saturday while riding a 7-line Flushing-to-Times Square subway train.

One of the victims, who has not been identified, was stabbed in the face, while the other was injured in the neck.

Ubiera had just been released from prison on Thursday after being arrested the day before for allegedly refusing to lay a knife in front of police, who had ordered him to do so. He first waved the gun at them and tried to run away with it.

The disturbing statistics follow Mayor Eric Adams’ vow to clean up the crime-ridden subway system, amid a flurry of reports of cuts, assaults and even murders on platforms and stations across the town.
