A 26-year-old man and his girlfriend boarded a northbound #2 train at Fulton Street on Wednesday night at around 11pm, an NYPD spokesperson told West Side Rag. Somewhere between there and the West 72nd Street station on Broadway, the perpetrator in this story started “making advances toward the victim’s girlfriend.” The victim asked him to stop, whereupon “the perp stabbed him in his leg and fled the scene.”
The victim was taken to an area hospital in stable condition. He and his assailant “did not know each other,” according to the police.
The Daily News has more details.
Update: Police released a photograph of the suspect.
The individual is described as a male, 50-years-old, a dark complexion, approximately 5’11” tall, weighing 180 lbs., medium build, brown eyes, brown hair and a grey beard. He was last seen wearing a blue hooded jacket, black pants, a grey hooded sweatshirt and a black watch cap.
