NEW YORK (1010 WINS) —Police say that a man attempting to intervene in a fight at a Brooklyn subway station was stabbed in the arm by one of the participants in the fight.

The stabbing took place on an F platform in Gowanas at around 4 p.m Thursday.

Police say the suspect fled towards the Red Hook houses.

“There’s always something at this train station here; it’s always really bad. I think it’s because of the drug activity,” one rider told 1010WINS.
