A postal worker catching the subway to work in Manhattan early yesterday was suddenly and savagely attacked by an emotionally disturbed ex-convict who grabbed two idle power saws on the platform and sliced open his chest, officials and the victim said.

Three hours after Michael Steinberg, 64, was attacked at the 110th Street 1/9 subway station, police arrested Tareyton Williams, 33, of the Bronx and charged him with attempted murder and robbery, police said.
