NEW YORK (PIX11) – Police and medical personnel rushed to the 23rd Street PATH station after a man was stabbed on the train Tuesday evening.

The attack happened shortly before 6 p.m. on a train leaving from 33rd Street.  The suspect then jumped off the train and fled the scene according to the NYPD.

The victim’s injuries are not expected to be life-threatening, he is being treated at the scene.

It’s not clear what led to the stabbing, but it was a frustrating evening commute for riders with many left stranded on delayed trains.

Because of car equipment problems starting around 4:30 p.m. on the Hoboken-33rd, Journal Square-33rd, Hoboken-WTC and Newark-WTC lines, frustrated riders took to Twitter to vent their frustrations:

By 5:49 p.m., only the Hoboken-33rd line was operating without delays as a disabled train near Grove Street snarled traffic on the other lines.
