Police are looking for a man accused of stabbing a subway rider on Wednesday afternoon.

The incident took place on a Queens-bound F train on September 26th. According to the NYPD, while the train was at the Queens Boulevard and 75 Avenue station, the victim, a 49-year-old man, was stabbed in the chest and leg following a verbal dispute with the suspect.

Sources tell Gothamist that the suspect had bumped into a woman, which started the argument. WABC 7 reports that the victim "tried to step in-between a man and a woman who were arguing."
