UPPER EAST SIDE — An NYPD officer is out of the hospital after being seriously injured when clipped by a train Friday night, while responding to an assault in a Manhattan subway station, police said.

The cop, along with other officers, was looking into a reported assault inside the East 86th Street station along the No. 4, 5 6 train lines Friday night around 9 p.m., according to police.
