The victim was transported to New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and is currently in stable condition, according to the New York Post. The suspect was taken into custody by police, however he was not immediately charged with a crime, the outlet reported.

This is not the first time a straphanger was stabbed in a New York subway slashing. Cellphone video shows an NYC subway aggressor harassing fellow passengers on June 13 before he was stabbed in self-defense. The man who stabbed the subway aggressor was defending his girlfriend who the instigator struck moments before the stabbing.

In a separate incident, former marine Daniel Penny pleaded not guilty to second-degree manslaughter charges after being accused of killing Jordan Neely by holding him in a chokehold on a New York subway train. Neely allegedly acted erratically, prompting Penny to take action against what he perceived to be a threat toward him and his fellow passengers.
