A woman is on the run after stabbing a teenager in front of his mother on a Penn Station subway platform Sunday — then bolting to the street above, cops said.

The 18-year-old victim was subletting a room to his attacker, Diamond Johnson, according to police.

The victim, flanked by his mom, confronted Johnson about unpaid rent on the No. 1 train platform just before 6:30 p.m., officials said. She then jabbed something sharp into his stomach before escaping, authorities said.

The suspect is described as 5-foot-8 tall, with a medium complexion, slim build and long brown hair in dreads.

Johnson looked over her shoulder at the chaos as she bolted through the turnstiles, surveillance footage shows.

Medics took the teen to Bellevue Hospital with a nonlife-threatening wound.

The attack left a blood spatter on the platform near three bags, a jacket and dice.

“There was a lot of people standing over there, and then you heard them all screaming and yelling,” said a homeless man sitting across from the platform.

The stabbing left blood and dice on the platform.

He didn’t see the stabbing itself, “but it looked like a lot of people were fighting,” said the man, who did not give his name.
