The NYPD released photos Sunday morning that show a suspect — covered in clothing from head to toe — wanted for fatally plunging a knife into a straphanger’s neck hours earlier.
The 32-year-old victim was on board a northbound No. 2 train at 12:17 a.m. when he was stabbed in the neck as the train entered Penn Station in Midtown, police said.
EMS responded and transported the male to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Release of his name was pending family notification.
The suspect fled the station.
Photos captured him at a turnstile but clothing mostly shields his face and body.
He was wearing a white baseball cap, black face mask and a gray jacket over a white shirt. He also donned an orange and black checkered hood.
He also has a dark complexion, stands about 5-foot-9 and weighs approximately 185 pounds, cops said.
