Two men were stabbed– including a 73-year old– while on the 7 train in Woodside Sunday morning.
The victims were sitting on a Manhattan-bound train– between 61st Street and 52nd Street– at around 7:25 a.m. when a man pulled out a pocket knife and started shouting at the first victim.
“Why aren’t you home with your wife and kids?” shouted the man, who was later arrested and identified as Patrick Chambers.
Chambers, 46, from the Bronx, then stabbed the victim in the stomach and the chest in what police say was an unprovoked attack.
A 73-year-old man tried to intervene and stop the attack but Chambers stabbed him on the left wrist and upper chest, police said.
Chambers was arrested by police after the train pulled into the 52nd St. station. He has been charged with assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.
The two victims were transferred by EMS to Elmhurst Hospital with non-life-threatening wounds, according to police.
