Police searching for man accused of stabbing subway preacher


An angry straphanger stabbed a subway preacher on an uptown Harlem train Friday when the victim wouldn’t stop delivering his sermon, police sources said.

The man stabbed the 49-year-old victim once in the stomach as the uptown 4 train was approaching the 125 St./Lexington Ave. station just after 1 p.m., cops said.

“He had enough,” said a police source. “He told the victim to ‘shut up and sit down.’ When he wouldn’t, the perpetrator cut him."

When the train pulled into the station, the attacker ran off, police said.

The victim got off the train at the E. 138th St./Grand Concourse station in the Bronx and was taken to Lincoln Medical Center in stable condition, cops said.

Police on Friday released a picture of the hooded suspect that was snapped by a quick-thinking rider.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS.
