Nov. 8, 2016 Staff Report
The police are looking to question a man in relation to a stabbing that took place on the 7 train platform at the 61st Street/Woodside station last month.
The suspect reportedly got into an argument with a man on the platform at around 8 pm on Sunday, October 23, before throwing a bottle at the victim, hitting him in the back as he was walking away.
This led to another argument, at which time the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim, causing a small puncture wound to his abdomen. The victim was not transported to hospital.
The man wanted for questioning is described as a light skinned Hispanic, 17 to 19 years-old, approximately 5’10” tall and 155 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans, and carrying a backpack.
A sketch is attached.
