BEFORD-STUYVESANT - Two people were slashed on a Manhattan-bound C train in Bedford-Stuyvesant on Tuesday afternoon.

Police say a man who may have been mentally unbalanced pulled out a razor and slashed two commuters on the head as the train pulled into the Ralph Avenue and Fulton Street stop.

Officials say they got to the suspect right away and both victims are expected to be OK.

Following the incident, police shut down the station as they investigated. Commuters were shuttled by bus to the next station.

Police say the suspect did not know the two victims he attacked.
