Man stabbed by apparent teen attacker on NYC train: cops
A straphanger was stabbed by an apparent teen during a possible cell-phone robbery on a Brooklyn train early Tuesday, cops said.
The victim was riding a southbound No. 2 train approaching the Winthrop Street station in Prospect Lefferts Gardens around 5:10 a.m. when the young suspect attacked him, police said.
Police believe the suspect grabbed the man’s cell phone.
The victim got off the train at Winthrop Street, where he reported the incident, cops said.
He was taken to the Kings County Hospital Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect — who cops say appeared to be a teenager and wore a black hoodie — has yet to be caught.
In another recent attack on the rails, a 33-year-old man was arguing with a straphanger on a No. 4 train at West Burnside Avenue and Jerome Avenue in The Bronx around 7:30 p.m. Sunday when he was stabbed in the neck, cops said.
He was hospitalized in stable condition.
