A 62-year-old man was randomly stabbed on a Manhattan-bound 7 train in Long Island City Friday morning.

The victim, police said, was stabbed in the face and hand by a suspect as the train was pulling into the Queensboro Plaza subway station at around 8:40 a.m.

Police say the suspect stabbed the man for no apparent reason and then fled on foot when the train stopped at the station.

The victim was transported by EMS to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition, police said.

The suspect is described as being in his 30s, and was last seen wearing a button-down shirt and black shorts.

No arrests have been made and the incident is still under investigation.

The MTA tweeted that the stabbing caused some delays to southbound 7 trains.

In an effort to get more young people involved in civics, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards has created a new advisory panel known as the Youth and Young Adult Council to introduce the “youngest and fiercest” community advocates to both community service and organization.

Members of the advisory body will advocate concerns through means of community engagement by participating in one of two cohorts. The first will be made up of high school representatives between the ages of 13 and 17, while the second cohort will be comprised of young adults between the ages of 18 and 25.
