JACKSON HEIGHTS, Queens — Police on Tuesday released images of a man they say stabbed another man multiple times on a subway train in Queens at the beginning of April.

Back on April 2, the two men were riding a Manhattan-bound E train in Jackson Heights just after 2:30 p.m. when they got into a verbal dispute, officials said.

Things escalated when the unidentified suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the 23-year-old victim in the face, stomach and hand, according to police.

The alleged attacker ran off the train at the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue station before fleeing onto the street to parts unknown, authorities said.

The victim survived and was transported by EMS to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The NYPD released the above surveillance images of the man they’re looking for, in hopes the public could help identify him.
