A New York man is wanted in connection with two unprovoked subway stabbings that took place within a 24-hour period, authorities said Saturday.
Donny Ubiera, 32, of Queens, allegedly punched a 62-year-old man in the face and right hand with a large knife aboard a southbound train around 8:40 a.m. Friday, police said.
Police said Ubiera approached the victim and was not provoked. After the stabbing, police said he got off the train at Queensboro Plaza station and fled on foot to Queens Plaza North.
The second unprovoked attack, according to police, took place on Saturday around 7:15 a.m. on the platform of train line 7 heading north. Ubiera is said to have pulled a large knife, approached a 55-year-old man and stabbed him in the neck.
