A subway rider was stabbed in the back during some sort of argument on a moving 2 train in Manhattan Saturday night, police say, marking the latest in a string of recent violence in the city's public transit system.
The NYPD says a report of the stabbing on the northbound train came in around 9:15 p.m. It wasn't clear what the rider and his attackers were arguing about, but the rider ended up taking a knife to the back.
He was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
No description of the suspects was immediately available. Police say they ran out of the 116th Street station in Harlem after the attack.
