Army Reservist Stabbed In Harlem Cab Before Flight To Belgium

A U.S. Army reservist about to fly to Belgium was deployed to a hospital early Saturday after he was stabbed in Harlem, officials said.

The 29-year-old victim was getting into a livery cab on W. 116th St. near Frederick Douglass Blvd. when a man ran up, reached through the window and jammed a black knife with a yellow handle into his stomach around 4 a.m., police said.

The stabbing was the end result of a fight further down on W. 116th St., near Texas Chicken and Burgers, police told sources.

The cab driver rushed the soldier to St. Luke’s Roosevelt-Hospital where he is expected to survive.

His attacker remained at large Saturday.
