PROSPECT LEFFERTS GARDENS, Brooklyn (PIX11) — A man was stabbed in the subway system beneath Prospect Lefferts Gardens during a robbery early Tuesday, officials said.

The victim was stabbed in the left arm and right side in or near the Winthrop Street station on the Nos. 2 and 5 lines around 5:10 a.m., according to authorities. Police described the incident as a cellphone robbery, but could not immediately say whether the victim was stabbed in the station or aboard a train.

First responders transported the victim, whose age was not immediately provided, to an area hospital in what officials described as stable condition.

Investigators said that two suspects fled the scene, but did not immediately provide a detailed physical description of them.

As of a 6:04 a.m. tweet from New York City Transit, trains were bypassing the station in both directions due to an ongoing NYPD investigation. The agency advised commuters headed to or from Winthrop Street to take the B44 bus.
