Two suspects sought in connection with deadly Thanksgiving stabbing near Penn Station

Cops need the public’s help in finding two men connected to a deadly Thanksgiving Night stabbing near Penn Station.

Police said the victim, a 36-year-old man, was knifed following a dispute near the transit hub, at the corner of West 33rd Street and 7th Avenue, at about 6:03 p.m. on Nov. 25.

According to WABC-TV, the victim — who, police said, was believed to be homeless — had approached MTA police moments after being stabbed in the chest. Officers immediately called for assistance, and members of the Midtown South Precinct and EMS responded.

Paramedics rushed the wounded man to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police have withheld his identity, pending family notification.

It was the second murder at or near Penn Station within a week. On Nov. 21, 32-year-old Akeen Loney was fatally stabbed in an apparently random attack on board a 2 train approaching Penn Station. So far, no arrests have been made in that case.

But hours after the Thanksgiving murder, the NYPD released images of two men connected to that day’s homicide.

One of the suspects, believed to have stabbed the victim, wore a black hooded sweatshirt, a brown-and-white patterned jacket, blue jeans and tan boots. The other perpetrator wore a black baseball cap, a black hood, a black jacket, black pants and gray shoes.
