The NYPD is still looking for a man who allegedly slashed a 19-year-old after he bumped into him inside a Kew Gardens subway station stairwell last month.
The teen boy was walking down a staircase in the station when he inadvertently bumped into a man at about 7 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 14. The two got into an argument which escalated when the unidentified man took out a knife, according to law enforcement.
He slashed the 19-year-old on the right hand and upper left arm before feeling the scene. The victim was taken to New York Downtown Hospital in stable condition, cops said.
The NYPD released a new video of the suspect Sunday night.
Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
