Passenger Stabbed on Subway by Group of Men: Police

A passenger was stabbed in the stomach by a group of men on the subway in the Bronx, police said Saturday. 

The 39-year-old victim was on the 4 train Friday night when he got into an argument with three or four men, police said. One of the men in the group stabbed him at the 167th Street subway station in the Concourse neighborhood, police said. 

He was taken to Lincoln Hospital, where he was listed in serious but stable condition.

No one is in custody or being questioned, police said. Police are asking for witnesses to come forward. 

Earlier this week, a woman who is three months pregnant was stabbed on the subway  by a man with 12 prior arrests, police said.

Shaday Tripp, 24, and her friend, 21-year-old Zakia Lewis, were riding a 2 train in the Morrisania section of the Bronx before the attack Thursday evening. Lewis said she had Tripp sitting on her lap, since the train was crowded and she was pregnant.

At some point during the ride, one of the women bumped into a man, sparking an argument that led to the stabbing, police say.

The suspect, 50-year-old Derrick Wilson, pleaded not guilty on Friday to charges including attempted murder.
