Many of us enjoy when the weather gets nicer as we feel free & full of energy that we can’t wait to unleash on the world.
However a dark side tends to come with nicer weather as for whatever reason, it awakens the low life in some people. This was the case last night as 3 different people were stabbed in 2 separate incidents on the subway this morning.
Let us first start with the incident which occurred this morning at 2:28 AM when 2 men boarded a southbound at Atlantic Ave and proceeded to rob a 50 year old male of $25. Not satisfied with this score, they went into another car & demanded the wallet of a 30 year old male. When he refused, they stabbed him in the head & stomach. As of a few hours ago, the victim was in stable condition at Kings County Hospital.
Unfortunately the night of crime continued as nearly one hour later, 2 men were slashed after arguing with 2 others on a Brooklyn-bound at the 116th St station. The two victims were taken to an unknown hospital with non life threatening injuries.
I wish the victims a speedy recover from their injuries as well as the quick capture of the people responsible. While crime is nowhere near the levels when it was truly unsafe to ride the subway, one should always remain vigilant.
