Subway Stabbing Suspect Chased through Chinatown
Cops tasered a knife-wielding straphanger in Chinatown Tuesday night, ending a wild chase after the suspect stabbed two men in a fight over a subway seat.
Forty-year-old Ronald Cundiff fled the West 4 subway station at 7:30pm after allegedly stabbing two individuals aboard a downtown A train.
According to a report in the Daily News, the altercation stemmed from a request by a 55-year-old straphanger that Cundiff move his bag from the seat so he could sit. Once rebuffed, the victim grabbed the bag himself, igniting an argument which led to the stomach wound.
A Good Samaritan came to his aid on the train, but was stabbed in the shoulder. He later tailed the suspect above-ground to Bowery and Canal where he helped cops identify Cundiff. There was then a brief struggle.
“You gonna Tase me?” Cundiff allegedly taunted police before officers did just that.
