BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn (WABC) -- Police are searching for the person who stabbed a man on a subway train in Brooklyn.

This is the second subway stabbing on a New York City train in two days.

Officials say the victim is recovering at Kings County Hospital.

The NYPD says the stabbing happened around 2 a.m. Sunday during a dispute on a northbound J train.

The 31-year-old victim was stabbed in the torso. The suspect fled moments after the stabbing, authorities said.

Detectives and officers closed off the area and the train as they investigated early Sunday.

There is no word on what the dispute was about.

On Saturday, a man was fatally stabbed while riding the subway near Union Square.

Like this stabbing in Brooklyn, a man riding the J train in Williamsburg on Tuesday was fatally stabbed by a fellow subway rider.

The man accused in that deadly subway stabbing Brooklyn was released without bail on Thursday afternoon.
