New York Post:
A Bronx man was hit with attempted murder charges for stabbing a pair of elderly straphangers in a wild caught-on-video melee on a Queens subway train, authorities said.
Patrick Chambers, 46, faces one count of attempted murder, two counts of first-degree attempted assault and other charges for the July 5 morning brawl on a 7 train, according to the Queens District Attorney’s Office.
Chambers, while clutching a pair of scissors in one hand and a knife in the other, allegedly began yelling at a 71-year-old man sitting across from him, according to police.
“Why aren’t you home with your kids?” he allegedly barked — before stabbing the senior.
Both men fell to the train floor, and Chambers allegedly continued slicing the elderly stranger.
A 73-year-old good Samaritan intervened and ended up with a stab wound in his chest and wrist.
