MOUNT HOPE, Bronx — A man stabbed a fellow subway rider in the buttocks after the two came into physical contact while on a Bronx-bound train, police said Wednesday.

It began when the 33-year-old victim sat down while riding the D train and accidentally touched the man next to him, police said. That man became irate, started a verbal dispute, then stabbed the victim once in the buttocks before fleeing to the street at the 174-175 Street station.

The victim was treated and released from the hospital, according to police.

Police described the incident as a robbery but did not say what was stolen.

No arrests have been made.

The man sought is believed to be 25 to 35 years old, standing 6 feet 1 inch tall, with blond highlighted dreadlocks, and was last seen wearing a black shirt, light blue jeans, and multicolored sneakers, police said.
