The police are on the hunt for a knife wielding suspect who is responsible for the stabbing of 23 year old Tony Sterling. The incident too place this past Friday at the Brooklyn College-Flatbush Avenue station on the 2 & 5 lines.
Mr. Sterling & his girlfriend were walking along the station’s platform when the suspect started to heckle them. Mr. Sterling stepped in between the suspect & his girlfriend which led to a fight between the suspect & himself. During the encounter, the suspect pulled out a knife & stabbed Mr. Sterling in the torso. The suspect fled the scene immediately after.
Mr. Sterling is currently in Kings County Hospital where we underwent surgery on Saturday. He is in stable condition & is expected to fully recover.
Hopefully the cops nab the asshole responsible for this. While I don’t believe people will heckle me based on my size, I always prepare myself for the situation possibly arising. I suggest everyone have a plan of action in mind for different scenarios that could occur. As I have told others, “a prepared rider is a smart rider”!
