Transit cops in Long Island City are looking for the subway slasher carrying a Grubhub delivery bag who sliced a woman’s leg on board an E train last week.

The NYPD released images of the perpetrator sought for the assault which occurred at about 11:44 p.m. on May 10 on a Manhattan-bound E train approaching the Queens Plaza station.

According to police, the suspect approached the victim, a 22-year-old woman, and displayed a sharp object. He then cut her on the left leg with the device, causing a laceration.

Law enforcement sources said the slasher exited the E train at Queens Plaza, located below the intersection of Jackson Avenue and Queens Boulevard, and fled to parts unknown.

Cops said the victim remained on the E train and departed at Lexington Avenue-53rd Street, where she called police. The incident was referred to the 108th Precinct and NYPD Transit District 20.

EMS rushed the woman to NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, where she was listed in stable condition.

A video police provided shows the suspect exiting the subway system through an emergency exit gate. He is pictured wearing a white baseball cap, a gray t-shirt with red and blue lettering on the front, and blue jeans while carrying a large red bag with the Grubhub logo, typically used for food delivery.
