The incident took place shortly after 8 a.m. this morning near the West 96th Street 1/2/3 subway station on Broadway.

Police officials say the victim was a 26-year-old man who the suspect stabbed in the buttocks. The victim was transported by EMS to a nearby hospital and is expected to survive.

A local food vendor who witnessed the attack told amNewYork that the 26-year-old victim collapsed outside the T-Mobile store across the street from the station.

Video shared on Citizen shows blood on the sidewalk outside of the T-Mobile store and blue police tape containing the scene. A police officer can also be seen asking a nearby building manager (who seems to have witnessed the incident) for his information.
