Man stabbed with his own pocket knife on Market Street

A 49-year-old man was stabbed with his own pocket knife before an MTA employee tackled the alleged stabber, according to police.

The incident at a bus stop on Market Street began just before 1 a.m. Tuesday when the suspect, a 35-year-old man, asked the victim if he had a pocket knife.

After he handed over the knife, the suspect began stabbing him.

The victim then tried to flee, hiding in the back of an MTA work truck near the 900 block of Market Street. That’s when a city worker tackled the assailant and detained him until police arrived.

The suspect was arrested and the victim is expected to survive.
