An assailant hit a man in the head with a hammer after hitting him in a Manhattan subway station on Tuesday night, law enforcement sources said.
The victim was hospitalized after the violent attack on the platform of the 14 Street line 1/2/3 subway station at around 9:15 p.m., sources said.
An argument broke out between the victim and the male suspect after the two crossed paths, sources say.
The assailant then pulled out the hammer and punched the man, who was taken to Bellevue Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect fled and was still wanted Wednesday morning.
The New York City subway was the scene of at least one other disturbing incident on Tuesday night.
Around 5 p.m., a man on board a southbound A train was arrested after allegedly threatening other passengers with a knife, sources said.
Good Samaritans on board the train intervened and restrained the man as the train pulled into the 59th Street/Columbus Circle station.
Transit police at the station then arrested the suspect, who is expected to be charged with threatening and criminal possession of a weapon, sources said.
No one on the train was injured.
