Wild video reveals man randomly stabbing Bronx straphanger who later died


The man stabbed by a random attacker in a Bronx subway station died early Friday — as cops released chilling video of the Thursday night attack. 

The 38-year-old victim — who was brutally assaulted at the 176th Street and Jerome Avenue station, just outside the northbound No. 4 train — succumbed to his injuries around 6 a.m. Friday, authorities said. 

The footage, released by cops a short time earlier, shows the victim and the suspect — wearing all black — scuffling on the northbound platform while the train was still in the station.

The victim, wearing a red-and-white jacket, was knifed multiple times in the back and chest during the 8:30 p.m. unprovoked attack, cops said.

The victim was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was initially listed in serious but stable condition before he took a turn for the worse, authorities said. 

No arrests had been made by Friday morning.
