    The NYPD is asking for the public's help finding a man accused of stabbing a subway passenger in the mouth with a pen, then throwing his belongings onto the tracks before running off with the victim's cellphone, police say. 

    The suspect approached a passenger on the northbound 6 train and followed him on to the platform at 125th Street and Lexington Avenue at around 10 p.m. last Thursday, police said.

    The suspect is about 35 years old, 6 feet tall and weighs about 190 pounds, according to police. He was last seen wearing a beige t-shirt and dark pants with his hair in a bun.
