Police are searching for a man who allegedly stabbed a 7 train passenger in the hand after getting into a verbal dispute with him yesterday.

The incident happened at around 2:20 p.m. as the assailant and the 37-year-old victim were arguing aboard a Manhattan-bound 7 train, police said.

The arguing eventually turned into a fight, where the victim was stabbed one time in the back of his right hand with a knife by the assailant, police said.

The knife-wielding attacker then got off at the Queensboro Plaza station, according to police.

The 37-year-old victim was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in Astoria, and was given five stitches to close the laceration on his hand.

CRIME IS DOWN according to Mayor DumBlasio and his puppet Police Commissioner. Crime stats kept low for potential Luxury Condo/Apt. buyers and Tourists.


MRLIC- Crime is down, nobody ever said it was eliminated. You’re like a gullible broken record.


I’m glad you dislike fake crime stats that benefit luxury condo developers. Trump notably retweeted COMPLETELY FAKE crime stats about African-americans, and he’s a luxury condo developer. And yet, you voted for him; what a sheep!
