Stroller mom slasher sentenced to 12 years in prison

The homeless woman who admitted to slashing a stroller mom on the subway in a random attack two years ago was sentenced to 12 years in prison on Friday.

Jacqueline Sanjurjo, 55, pleaded guilty earlier this month to first-degree assault for attacking Anna Martinez on a southbound 5 train after boarding at Harlem’s 125th Street station.

Martinez ended up with an 8-inch gash from the left side of her forehead to below her eye that required 30 stitches after the unprovoked attack May 28, 2017.

It also made Martinez terrified to ride the subway again.

“I won’t be taking the train — not at all,” Martinez told The Post at the time. “I’m afraid.”

Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Laura Ward imposed the agreed upon sentence and ordered that Sanjurjo receive medical and mental health treatment — something she thinks will help the woman whose lawyer says was a victim of domestic violence and suffered from mental illness.

“Right now you are on the right track. You are on your medications and you are getting treated for your medical issues,” Ward said.

Martinez said that the homeless woman had followed her into the subway station, sneaking in through the gate that had been opened for Martinez, who was pushing her 18-month-old son in a stroller.

Sanjurjo — who was wearing a long T-shirt but no pants — sat across from Martinez on the train before attacking her as the doors opened when the train stopped at Grand Central Station, Martinez explained at the time.

Sanjurjo had 60 prior arrests for drugs and prostitution, cops said after the incident.

Sanjurjo has been in jail pending her case.
