A 27-year-old man was stabbed on a subway train Wednesday as it was pulling into a Long Island City subway station.

The victim was attacked after getting into an argument with the alleged perpetrator onboard a Manhattan-bound F train as it approached the 21st Street-Queensbridge station around 2:34 p.m., police said.

The suspect stabbed the victim in the chest and fled. The victim was not seriously injured, and refused medical attention at the scene.

Cops were able to track down the suspect and arrested Ramel Bain, 34, of Brooklyn. He has been charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

The stabbing is the second violent incident to occur at the subway station within two weeks.

On Monday, May 24, an Asian man was shoved onto the tracks by a stranger in what police are investigating as a possible hate crime. The victim was helped back onto the platform by bystanders and suffered a minor injury to his forehead.

Sorry to hear about this senseless crime. But, Queensbridge is LIC? Isn’t Queensbridge just Queensbridge?

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
