The male suspect who knifed a fellow commuter during a dispute at a Greenwich Village train station last month remains on the lam, police reported.

The NYPD released images Saturday morning of the suspect behind the Nov. 20 attack, which occurred at about 4:59 p.m. at the West 4th Street subway station.

According to law enforcement sources, the perpetrator engaged the 22-year-old male victim in a dispute as they both rode a Brooklyn-bound A train as it neared the West 4th Street stop.

After they disembarked the train, cops said, the attacker pulled out a cutting instrument and stabbed the 22-year-old man in the head. He then fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 6th Precinct and NYPD Transit District 2 responded to the assault. EMS brought the victim to a local hospital in stable condition.

As shown in the images that police released, the suspect wore a light green baseball cap, a dark-colored sweater and black pants.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
