NEW YORK CITY, NY – A Manhattan subway fight involving a violent disagreement between two men resulted in a dog being stabbed in the leg.
Furthermore, the subway fight began a little after 4 a.m. on the F line at the 14th Street station. According to New York City police officials, a man, 34, was asleep on a subway bench before the fight ensued. However, at some point during the night, he and another man got into an argument. The argument became more and more heated as the night went on, escalating to violence.
As a result of the dispute, a man described to be in his 30s stabbed the other man in his right leg. Not only that, but the suspect then stabs the man’s dog in a bizarre fashion, too. He stabbed the poor canine in the leg before fleeing the scene.
Subway Fight Leads to Hospitalization
Nevertheless, the victim was rushed to the hospital where he was treated for stab wounds. He is expected to make a full recovery. The dog, on the other hand, also received medical attention and is expected to survive all injuries as well.
Moreover, several police officers were later seen surveying the subway for signs of evidence. In addition, they were on hand, assisting the injured dog into a crate to be seen by medical professionals. However, police are still not clear on what provoked the confrontation. The investigation remains unsolved and ongoing.
Even for the New York City subway system, this situation is very strange. Seeing a poor, innocent dog get stabbed is very distressing. After all, thousands of people use the subway every day, and many of them bring beloved pets along with them. And they don’t want those pets to be in danger of a stabbing, of all things!
