Police Looking for Pair of Manhattan Subway Stabbers

Police are hunting for two suspects they say stabbed a man on a subway train on the east side of Manhattan Tuesday afternoon. 

According to the NYPD, the victim was on a Brooklyn-bound 4 train when he got into a heated argument with two people around 1 p.m. Things turned physical at some point, and the suspects stabbed him in the stomach.

Afterward, the attackers hopped off the train at the Lexington Avenue/59th Street station. 

Officers and paramedics caught up with the 30-year-old victim at the next stop, 42nd Street/Grand Central Terminal. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital and is expected to survive. 

Police say one of the suspects is transgender, wearing a blonde wig, while the other is a man sporting a hoodie and dark jeans. It is not yet clear if suspects and victims knew each other prior to the incident, or why the fight started.

Anyone with information on the stabbing should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
