HAMILTON HEIGHTS, Manhattan (WABC) -- Police are releasing photos of the suspect wanted for stabbing a man on the subway in Manhattan.

It happened Friday on the uptown 1 train platform at 145th Street and Broadway in Hamilton Heights.

The 31-year-old victim was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Police said a dispute between two men led to one being stabbed twice in the lower back.
