Transgender man, female partner slashed during Manhattan subway fight

A transgender man and his female partner were slashed during a fight with a straphanger who hurled homophobic slurs at the pair on a Manhattan train early Friday, according to cops.

Khleo Finnie, 23, of The Bronx and his 22-year-old partner were on a No. 3 train at 96th Street on the Upper West Side around 2 a.m. when a man in his 40s said Finnie was “dressed like a boy” and called him a “f—-t” and a “b—h,” cops said.

Finnie displayed a knife and menaced the man, police said.

Then the man grabbed the knife, slashing both Finnie and his partner during the struggle, cops said.

Finnie was cut above his left ear, and his partner suffered a slash wound over her eyebrow and wrist, cops said.

The slashing suspect bolted from the station after the assault but was quickly busted by cops, with charges still pending by the afternoon.

Witnesses showed video to authorities indicating that Finnie had the knife first, according to police.

He was also taken into custody and charged with second-degree menacing.

Hours earlier, two men were slashed on the 2 and 3 platform of the Central Park North–110th Street station, cops said.

The violence erupted after one of the victims got into a dispute with the suspect, who pulled out a knife and slashed the man’s left arm shortly before 8 p.m., law enforcement sources said.

As the culprit fled, he slashed a second man in the left forearm before running off, sources said.

The assaults come amid a recent spate of violence in the city’s subway system.
