Police say two people have been arrested in a stabbing at a Bronx subway station that occurred after a confrontation over a stolen cellphone.

Police say the 19-year-old victim fell asleep while riding a southbound No. 4 train early Saturday. He awoke around 4 a.m. to find his cellphone gone — and then spotted another passenger with the phone.

Police say that passenger and a companion got off the train at the Fordham Road station, and the victim followed them. He was stabbed numerous times, suffering critical injuries.

Police say a 22-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman were later arrested on attempted murder and other charges.
