Man stabbed on New York subway train after argument with another passenger over smoking


NEW YORK (AP) — A dispute over smoking on a New York subway train Monday morning led to one man being stabbed multiple times and another arrested.

This incident happened on a Manhattan-bound Brooklyn train. Police received a 911 call for a person in distress at 4:35 a.m. and found a 52-year-old man with multiple stab wounds to his back. He was taken to a hospital in stable condition, according to the NYPD.

Police later caught the stabbing suspect outside a Brooklyn train station. Details about the charges in the case have not yet been released.

The initial police investigation revealed that people argued about someone smoking on the train, which is not allowed and can result in a $50 fine.

The incident occurred just hours before the NYPD announced plans to add hundreds of additional uniformed and plainclothes police officers to the subway system as part of a week-long operation to crack down on fare evasion.
