Brooklyn residents using the MTA are concerned for their safety after two separate stabbings took place at subway stations in Brooklyn on Monday.
A 20-year-old woman was stabbed in the back with an unknown object at the turnstile at the Franklin Avenue subway station in Brooklyn, according to the NYPD.
This comes after police made an arrest in connection to a Monday morning stabbing on the J train at the Kosciuszko Street station in Brooklyn.
According to the NYPD, a 52-year-old man was stabbed multiple times in the back at around 4:35 a.m. Police say they were on a routine walk on the platform and were able to assist the victim, who is now in stable condition.
Locals tell News 12 that they're now scared of walking into the subway and have been reminded that commuting is no longer safe in the city.
"We shouldn't have to be worried about who is doing what or going to work or maybe dropping off our kids then have to worry about if someone is going to stab us or shoot us," said daily commuter and mother Melissa Hodgson. "That's just not how we should be living in this world right now."
The suspect was apprehended at the station and is now in custody. His charges are pending.
