NEW YORK — Police say a man out for a night on the town was stabbed in New York’s Times Square.

Authorities say the 30-year-old man was attacked while he and a woman were walking through the tourist district around 10:30 p.m. Friday.

They say the attacker may have argued with the man before stabbing him and fleeing on foot. No arrests have been made.

The victim was hospitalized in stable condition. His hometown wasn’t available.

The stabbing happened on a bustling stretch of 42nd Street filled with restaurants, theaters and hotspots such as the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum.

The area has transformed in recent decades. It has taken on a safer, family-friendly image after an era of being a gritty, red-light district dominated by porn parlors, strip clubs and crime.
