One of the groups left the train at 231st Street, police said. While officers were clearing the trains at 238th Street, the lieutenant was punched by two men, according to authorities.
Police said the suspects ran onto to tracks to try to flee. Officers were able to catch up to the two and arrest them, according to authorities. They had a knife, box cutter and straight razor on them, police said. The lieutenant was brought to St. Barnabas for lacerations, according to authorities.
