An assailant randomly stabbed two men in separate attacks in Morningside Heights on Thursday night — leaving one of the victims in grave condition, police and sources said.
The first knifing occurred near the intersection of Amsterdam Avenue and 123rd Street shortly before 11 p.m., cops said.
About 15 minutes later, the same male suspect stabbed another victim near Morningside Park at the intersection at Morningside Drive and West 110th Street, according to police and sources.
The victims are 30 and 27 years old, police said. One of them was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries and the other is expected to survive.
The attacker fled east on West 110th Street after the second stabbing and was busted in Central Park, police said. A knife was recovered, sources said.
