Benjamin Mazyck Wiki, Bio, Age
An off-duty NYPD officer was stabbed in the head at New York City’s Union Square subway station Tuesday, the department said.
It happened around 12:03 p.m. at the 14th Street-Union Square station, just below Union Square in Manhattan.
The suspect, 42-year-old Brooklyn resident Benjamin Mazyck, was taken into custody and charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
Mazyck allegedly stabbed the 29-year-old victim in the back of the head at an NQR line turnstile.
The victim spoke with responding officers at the scene and was taken by EMS to the NYC Health and Hospitals HealthPlex in stable condition.
The attack happened at the crossroads of several affluent communities and as the city is seeing an uptick in murders and assaults.
On Monday, police released video showing a broad-daylight attack on a food delivery driver being stabbed from behind in what appears to have been an attack at random. The victim was treated at a hospital and is expected to recover.
