A MAN in his 20s died after a man stabbed him on Saturday afternoon while on a New York City subway platform, police said.
Cops believe an argument arose between the two men while on the train platform at Chambers Street in Lower Manhattan on Saturday just before 3pm.
The attacker, believed to be in his 30s, stabbed the victim multiple times in both legs, delivering blows that would end up fatal, police said.
The victim was said to be involved in an altercation with the perpetrator moments earlier.
He was rushed to a hospital but could not be saved. The victim was pronounced dead just 40 minutes after the stabbing, officials said.
The suspect took off in an unknown direction and remains on the loose as of Monday.
Authorities are looking for surveillance footage that may have caught his direction.
They said a motive is not yet known.
Following the stabbing, officers detained a man who identified himself as the victim's cousin. He had blood on his face and shirt which appeared to be from a cut.
The man resisted as police detained him and reassured him he wasn't under arrest but needed to be cuffed before they drove him to the precinct.
Grizzly photos captured at the scene show a pool of blood down the stairs to the train platform.
No arrests have so far been made in the case as of Sunday morning, police said.
