Three people have been stabbed to death in the New York City Subway System within the last 10 days, raising even more questions about safety and security in the nation’s largest metropolis.
From the NY Post:
Three people have been killed in New York City’s transit system in the past 10 days, amid a string of other violent incidents.
On Sunday around 8:30 p.m., Lamont Barkley, 55, was on a BX19 bus when he was fatally stabbed numerous times, police said.
Before his slaying, Barkley had gotten into an argument with a woman at a nearby bar, Glen Roy’s Public House, prompting her to call a man to come to the area, police sources said.
At some point, the trio got on the bus, where the man and woman attacked Barkley, sources said.
The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital but could not be saved, while his attackers fled and have yet to be apprehended.
