NYPD: Person In Custody After Man Stabbed During Morning Commute On Brooklyn Subway

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A person is in custody after a man was stabbed on a Brooklyn subway during the Monday morning commute.

It happened just after 8 a.m. on a Manhattan-bound R train in Bay Ridge.

Witnesses told CBS2 it started as a fight between two men.

"They started going at each other, punching each other. A gentleman pulled out a knife, stabbed another gentleman around the neck and around the head area," said Nester Retrepo.

"He got blood all over his chest... He's like, 'I'm dying, I need help, I need a towel, I need a shirt,'" said Mark Mazella.

Witnesses said they called police as the men got off the train at 77th Street.

Police said the men were taken to the hospital in stable conditions.

There was no immediate word on what started the fight.
