A construction worker stabbed a coworker on the Upper West Side on Friday.
The incident took place at about 12:46 p.m. at 36 West 66th Street between Columbus Avenue and Central Park West, the future site of 50 West 66th Street, which is expected to be the neighborhood’s tallest building once complete.
NYPD officials tell ILTUWS that a 23-year-old stabbed a 34-year-old who was found with “multiple stab wounds about the body.”
Police say a preliminary investigation revealed the two men were involved in a verbal dispute – which, according to a report by PIX 11, was about music – and that the altercation led the 23-year-old to stab his coworker in the abdomen.
“The victim also suffered a minor laceration to the neck and a puncture wound to his back,” police add. The 34-year-old was transported by EMS to St. Luke’s Hospital in stable condition.
Nikaloy Taylor, 23, has been arrested on charges of assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
