A man was arrested and his accomplice is being sought in connection with the robbery and stabbing of a 75-year-old Bronx man on a northbound 5 train just before it pulled the Wall Street station on Halloween, police said.

The man told police he was approached by the pair, who engaged him in conversation around 10:15 p.m. The woman, later identified as Scarlet Acuna, 29, snatched the man’s cellphone and stabbed him on the arm, leg and stomach with a knife when he tried to get his phone back, police said. As he continued to fight with the woman, the man, later identified as Steve Beauvoir, punched him several times in the face. Acuna and Beauvior fled the train when it pulled in to the Wall Street station. The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he was initially listed in serious but stable condition. Beauvoir was subsequently apprehended and arrested on robbery charges.

Police described Acuna as 5 feet, 5 inches tall, and weighing about 170 pounds. She has a tattoo on her forehead and wears long dreadlocks. She was last seen wearing a black sweater with white skulls on its front, green pants and white sneakers, police said.
