Three people were wounded in two separate knife attacks early Saturday in Manhattan, police said.

A 23-year-old woman was slashed in the chest by a man with whom she was arguing at around 5 a.m. on West 47th Street and 8th Avenue near Times Square, police said. The woman refused medical attention, and her attacker fled, police said.

About two hours earlier, shortly before 3 a.m. on the Lower East Side, a 27-year-old man was stabbed in the stomach and a 26-year-old was stabbed in the left forearm following a squabble with a man in his 20s on Hester and Essex streets, police said.
