DUMBO, Brooklyn (WABC) -- In another incident of violence on the subway, a man was stabbed in the shoulder Tuesday afternoon aboard a train in Brooklyn.

Two men were arguing on a northbound F train around 3:15 p.m. Tuesday.

That's when one man pulled out a knife and stabbed the other in shoulder. The victim then struck the suspect in the head causing bleeding, according to police.

The train was stopped at York Street in DUMBO and the suspect fled.

EMS transported the victim to Brooklyn Hospital Center in stable condition.

Police say the suspect is described as in his 20s with a black long sleeve shirt and mustard-colored pants.

Southbound F and Metropolitan Ave-bound M trains ran with delays after the NYPD finished an investigation at York Street.

Southbound F trains have since resumed making regular stops between Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Ave and Jay St-MetroTech.

No arrests have been made and a motive has not been determined in the incident.
