An argument between two men riding an uptown D train resulted in the fatal stabbing of one of the men.
The victim was 36 years old, and was found with stab wound to his neck and face. A steak knife was later recovered at the scene. The victim was pronounced dead by paramedics at the 7th avenue train station.
The suspect, 37-years-old, was arrested on the scene by the Police Department’s Transit Bureau.
According to witnesses and detectives, the two men clashed over a seat. Detectives are currently investigating reports saying the argument started after the victim refused to move his bag so the suspect could sit down.
There were about a dozen riders on the train car as the attack took place. The attack happened around 2 a.m. When the attack happened, a passenger told the conductor of the train, who immediately went to investigate.
