Two Men Arrested After Separate Subway Stabbing Sprees In New York City

Two men are under arrest after a series of separate stabbings across New York City, including three on the subway in one day.

A 27-year-old Queens man is in custody for two subway stabbings on Wednesday — at Columbus Circle and in the Bronx.

The suspect, identified as Mark Ford of Queens, was spotted in the Bedford Park station in the Bronx at 7:20 a.m. Thursday, and after a brief chase, was taken into custody. He was in possession of two knives at the time of the arrest.

He has multiple prior arrests, including five in the last 12 months for charges ranging from assault to sex crimes.

He was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon in both attacks.

The two stabbings are not related to the stabbing on the subway in Brooklyn on Wednesday morning, which is now linked to Queens stabbing suspect Jermain Rigueur, who was walked from the 113th Precinct in Jamaica on Thursday.

Rigueur, the suspect in the spree of unprovoked stabbings in Queens, has been charged with attempted murder in the attacks on five people.
