NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A man was stabbed multiple times Sunday morning during a dispute with another man in a restroom at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, police said.
Port Authority police have identified the suspect as Aazim Green, 22, of Jamaica, Queens.
The attack happened around 7 a.m. in the men’s room next to the Greyhound bus terminals on the lower level of the north wing of the Port Authority, CBS2’s Hazel Sanchez reported.
Police say Green knew his 47-year-old victim. The suspect fled after the attack but is now in custody, cops said. He faces several charges, including attempted murder.
Investigators are looking into the possibility that the victim had a relationship with the suspect’s mother. But the motive remains unclear.
The victim had surgery earlier Sunday and is expected to be OK, Sanchez reported.
The stabbing comes a month after a woman was allegedly raped inside the Port Authority parking garage.
Some travelers were feeling very uneasy after learning about the latest crime.
“Oh my gosh! Really?” one woman told Sanchez. “I think that’s ridiculous. With the amount of police, that shouldn’t be happening around here.”
“It’s scary. It really is,” another woman said. “You have to be very careful when you’re traveling through here. “
