Man murdered on
platform may have been
Police are looking for the culprit who stabbed
a man to death on a subway platform in Elmhurst
early in the morning of Friday, April 23.
The incident happened at about 5:42 a.m. on
April 23 on the Manhattan-bound side of the
Grand Avenue-Newtown station, along the M and
R local lines.
Officers from the NYPD Transit District 20, after
being alerted to the incident, found the victim
unconscious and unresponsive with a stab wound
to his chest.
Police do not yet know the man’s identity, but
sources familiar with the investigation stated that
he appeared to be homeless, and between 40 and
50 years of age.
EMS units rushed the man to Elmhurst Hospital,
where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
No arrests have been made, thus far, in the
ongoing investigation, law enforcement sources
The murder led to morning rush hour disruptions
along the M and R lines on April 23.
The homicide may only further complicate
the feeling of insecurity among subway riders.
Though NYPD officials reported a drop in subway
crime at the MTA board’s April 21 meeting, some
board members relayed concerns from riders that
they still did not feel safe.
