A 29-year-old man was wounded in the arm near the southwest corner of East 63rd Street and Third Avenue around 2 p.m., according to an NYPD spokesperson.
He was taken to a hospital nearby and expected to recover, according to NYPD.
A man in his thirties, wearing all black clothing and a black face mask, is suspected of stabbing the victim. After the assault, he fled downtown on foot along Third Avenue.
The identities of the two individuals have not yet been released, and it was unclear whether they knew each other. Police were at a loss to explain what caused the stabbing.
On the corner of Third Avenue and 63rd Street, just outside an entrance to the F-Q subway station, a photo depicting blood on the sidewalk appeared.
A video posted to the Citizen app showed a large police presence at the intersection of Third Avenue. The NYPD’s 19th Precinct advised residents to avoid the area, stating in a tweet that an investigation was underway on the corner.
