MIDTOWN (PIX11) — A drunk man stabbed three people waiting on the platform for the northbound 6 train at Grand Central Terminal early Saturday, police said.

Ivan Deleon Jr., 38,  was acting belligerently around 12:15 a.m. as he tried to exit the train, police said, and he bumped into a child who was trying to board with his family and friends. He then got into a verbal altercation with a 27-year-old man, believed to be the child’s father.

The suspect took out a knife and stabbed him in the chest. He also slashed a 29-year-old man in the arm and a 27-year-old man in the stomach.

The three victims were taken to Bellevue Hospital. The 27-year-old who was stabbed in the chest is in critical but stable condition, while the other victims are listed in stable condition. The child was unhurt in the disturbance.

Deleon was taken to NYU Medical Center and charged with assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.
