NEW YORK — Authorities have asked for assistance in identifying the suspect who stabbed a man and pushed his wife down the stairs outside a Bronx subway station Tuesday evening. 

It happened on Tuesday around 7:45 p.m., police said.

A 37-year-old man and his 33-year-old wife were on board a northbound No. 4 train at the Bowling Green station in Manhattan when they noticed a man acting belligerent on the train, authorities said.

The man then engaged in a verbal dispute with the suspect, cops said.

When the couple got off the train at the East 170 Street and Jerome Avenue subway station, the suspect followed them to the street where he punched the man in the back of the head and began stabbing him with a knife, according to police.
