Police found a man on the southbound 2 train bleeding from the hand and fingers, they said.

Two men were taken to the hospital with stab wounds after an altercation in Brooklyn on Sunday evening, police say, and one of the men was found on a train not from from the incident.

While information is still sketchy, the dispute and stabbing in Flatbush took place in front of 1139 Rogers Ave. near Clarendon Road at 5:21 p.m. Police from the 67th Precinct responded and found the victim, who was apparently not cooperative with investigators.

Witnesses told police that the suspect fled northbound on Rogers Avenue after the incident, leading police to the subway station on Church Avenue and Nostrand Avenue, where they found a Hispanic man on the southbound 2 train apparently bleeding from the hand and fingers.

EMS was called by transit police and he was bandaged on the train as commuters waited on the platform for the incident to be cleared. The man, said to be combative and possibly disturbed with bloody hands, was taken to Kings County Hospital for treatment.

The more seriously injured of the two, a 25-year-old man, was stabbed multiple times in the back, chest and right side of the head. Police say he was rushed to Kings County Hospital in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.

No charges had been filed as of Monday afternoon.

Train service on the south-bound 2 train was held for 20 minutes during the investigation.

It was still unclear as to what exactly started the altercation, but it appears the two victims, knew each other, but are still uncooperative at this time. No weapon was recovered and the 67th Precinct was investigating.
