New York – Police say a man was stabbed during a robbery in the subway station under New York's Times Square.

The New York Police Department is looking for suspects after the assault around 05:00 on Saturday.

Officers were told that an 18-year-old man was on a staircase when a group of young men approached and assaulted him. One of the assailants pulled a knife and stabbed the man in the torso. He was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

The attackers took his coat and book bag.

Police have released edited surveillance video showing seven men filing into the subway station and, later, one of them picking up a bag and coat at the top of a stairway. The video doesn't show the attack itself.
