MTA clerk from the Bronx saves slashing victim

An MTA clerk from the Bronx is being hailed a hero for saving a man from a slashing attack in Manhattan. 



According to police, Richard Singleton saw two men having an argument Sunday at the 28th Street and Park Avenue subway station for the southbound 6 train. 



They say one of the men pulled out a knife and started slashing the other, and that's when Singleton rushed out of his booth and held the suspect down until officers arrived. 



News 12 spoke with Singleton, who says he was just trying to do the right thing. 



Authorities say the suspect is 27-year-old Donald Cheatham, from North Carolina. He faces charges of felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon. 



The victim is expected to be OK.
