New York

NEW YORK (AP) — Police say an intoxicated straphanger stabbed three other men on a subway train pulling into New York's Grand Central Terminal.

The altercation happened early Saturday on an uptown No. 6 train.

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

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

The child was not harmed.

The three men are all being treated at Bellevue Hospital. The victim 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.
