Associated Press

NEW YORK  — Police say a drunken straphanger has stabbed three men on a subway platform in New York City.

The altercation happened early Saturday as an uptown No. 6 train arrived at Grand Central Terminal.

Police say the fight started when an intoxicated man named Ivan DeLeon bumped into a child while exiting the train.

They say the 38-year-old DeLeon stabbed one man in the chest, one in the arm and one in the stomach.

The child wasn't harmed.

The three men are being treated at Bellevue Hospital.

The man who was stabbed in the chest is in critical but stable condition. The other two suffered less serious injuries.

DeLeon was arrested on charges of assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon. It wasn't clear if he had a lawyer.
