Two men have been accused in relation to a stabbing that took place on the platform of the East 182nd-183rd Streets station in Fordham Heights. 
The two suspects, 19-year-olds Elias Asslada and Emmanual Awah, now face charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, and robbery.
The pair are two out of the four police say are responsible for the attack that left a 29-year-old man fighting for his life, according to police. That man is now in stable condition.  The NYPD says that Awah was found at home, and Asslada turned himself in in Transit District 11.
The following image shows the two men who are still on the run at the bottom, and the two men who have been arrested at the top.
Police say the dispute took place after the 29-year-old victim wished the group a happy new year. The verbal dispute escalated, and the four men punched the victim multiple times in the face and body before one suspect pulled out a sharp object and stabbed the victim multiple times.
