Man Stabbed During Attempted Mugging on Subway: NYPD

A man riding the subway was stabbed and punched during an attempted mugging by a group of people early Saturday, the NYPD said. 

The 38-year-old victim was on the northbound D train in Chinatown when five people came up and demanded money, police said. 

He refused and two of the men started punching him, police said. He resisted and a third man asked one of the women to give him a knife. 

The man then stabbed the victim in the head and torso, police said. 

The suspects fled at the Grand Street station on the Lower East Side, police said. 

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
