The floor at the turnstiles to enter the train station platform was covered with rubbish and bloodied.

The alleged suspect, who has not yet been named, was seen unharmed while handcuffed on the desk.

The bald man, dressed in jeans, black boots and a black trench coat, even appeared to be grinning at the camera as he was led to the back of the police car.

Both the victim and suspect remain unidentified and the NYPD said the investigation is ongoing.

The attack comes just two days after a Columbia University doctoral student was stabbed to death near the historic campus of Manhattan’s Ivy League College – one of three people attacked by an “ecstatic” gang member during a violent stabbing.

Davide Giri, 30, a PhD candidate in computer science, died around 11 p.m. after being stabbed in the stomach by a 25-year-old member of the Bloods gang off-shoot, Everybody Killas, who has had 16 previous arrests dating back to 2012 and was on parole for a gang attack in 2015, police said.

Officers arrested the suspect – Vincent Pinkney of Manhattan – 20 minutes later in Central Park after he had already stabbed an Italian tourist, Robert Malastina, 27, outside the park, crying with joy, and proceeded to ‘threat’ another man, 29, holding a large kitchen knife as the victim strolled through the park with his girlfriend.

Giri’s deadly stabbing on Thursday occurred just steps from where Bernard College student Tessa Majors, 18, was brutally stabbed to death in December 2019, as violent crime continues to rise in New York City.

Police said Pinkney has a long criminal record that includes robberies and assaults and other alleged crimes.

He was previously convicted of gang assault in 2015 and served two years in prison for four years before being released on parole, according to State Department of Corrections records.

Police said Giri was the first victim of the stabbing and was attacked just before 11 p.m. Thursday at 123rd Street and Amsterdam Avenue, in Morningside Heights.

Giri, a Brooklyn native and Italian, was stabbed on the way to his apartment after playing a soccer game with NY International FC. He was taken to St Luke’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A Columbia student told the Daily News that Pinkney had cried with joy after stabbing Giri and moving on to the second victim.

“He was ecstatic,” the student said.

In an effort to curb the violent streak, the Bank of America reportedly told its Midtown employees Friday to “dress up” and not wear company logos when commuting to the office.

Senior executives at the bank’s Bryant Park location have encouraged their younger employees to dress to draw less attention when traveling to work and have warned employees that wearing the company’s logo or dressing up could make them a target for abuse, which is the issue. 15 percent in the past month.

John Yiannacopoulos, a media relations manager for Bank of America, told DailyMail.com on Friday that the company does provide “safety guidelines” to employees.

However, Bank of America refused to show DailyMail.com its guidelines.

A chief executive of a major money management company even said he started carrying a taser — which has been legal in New York since 2019, when a federal court overturned the state’s entire ban on civilian stun guns and tasers.

The bank’s office is just steps from Times Square, and many employees use Penn Station and Port Authority as transportation hubs to commute to the office.

The rise in crime in New York City has only added to fears as daylight saving time ended in November, leaving many commuters traveling home after dark.

As a result, some companies, including Bank of America and Citibank, offer private shuttles and car services for their employees who work out of hours so they can avoid public transportation altogether.

Meanwhile, elected mayor Eric Adams, 61 – who has campaigned for public safety – has pledged to make the city safer and many hope he can.
