‘Heinous and unprovoked’ stabbing spree on New York subway

Passengers on board a New York subway carriage were subjected to a brutal and unprovoked knife assault in broad daylight. The shocking incident was caught on video, and comes amid a crime surge in the Big Apple.

In the grisly footage, the suspect viciously attacked two men, knocking both to the floor of the carriage and slashing as they tried to fight back. One victim managed to get to his feet and drive the attacker away, but had a knife thrust into his torso in the scuffle.

Local news reports suggest the incident took place last Sunday, and as the video spread around the internet on Saturday, NYPD Transit Chief Edward Delatorre explained that the suspect was “arrested moments later, charged with multiple counts of felony assault, menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon, and is currently awaiting prosecution.”

According to Delatorre, the stabbing was a “heinous and unprovoked attack.” Both victims were taken to hospital with non-critical injuries
