A man has died after he was repeatedly stabbed in the legs following a dispute on a lower Manhattan subway station in New York City on Saturday, officials revealed.

The attack unfolded just before 3pm on the northbound J/Z train platform in Chambers Street Station, near to City Hall, where the victim, in his 20s, had been ensnared in an argument with another man, said to be in his 30s.

The cause of the dispute is unknown, but the altercation quickly turned violent.

During the scuffle, the suspect pulled a knife and stabbed the victim ‘multiple times’ in each of his legs, according to the NYPD.

Police were called but the attacker fled before officers arrived on scene.

Images captured by the NY Post paint a grisly scene, with a pool of blood seen at the foot of a stairwell, and an incapacitated man on the floor being attended to by a group of officers.

The victim was rushed to the Beekman Downtown Hospital where he was later pronounced dead around 40 minutes after arriving. He suffered numerous stab wounds to both of his legs.

Police have not yet publicly identified the victim as they reportedly attempt to locate his next of kin.

The attacker was described by police as a man with long black hair who is believed to be about 30 years old and is roughly 5’5″ tall and 150 pounds.  

He was last seen wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, according to police.

After the stabbing, police detained a man at the scene who identified himself as the victim’s cousin.

He had blood on his face, appearing to be from a cut, and on his shirt, the New York Daily News reported.

The man resisted as cops attempted to detain him and put him in the back of a patrol vehicle.

Officers reportedly assured the man he wasn’t under arrest, but said they needed to handcuff him before driving him to a police precinct.

The circumstances around the temporary detainment were not immediately clear. His hand cuffs were removed before officers drove away, the Daily News reported.

No arrests have so far been made in the case as of Sunday morning, police said. A motive is not yet known.

Commuters told CBS New York that news of the stabbing was concerning and unnerving.

‘We’ve got a 20-year-old, 14-year-old, 12-year-old, and I worry about that because they are my grandkids,’ Andrea Rodriguez said to the network.

‘This is the world we live in. It’s getting crazier, stressful day by day,’ Selina Tricoche said. ‘For that to happen, that’s scary.’

Just over 12 hours later, in the early hours of Sunday morning, a second stabbing occurred at 260 W 40th Street, outside the AC Hotel in Times Square at around 4:29am.

Police remained at the scene investigating throughout the early hours.

The NYPD told DailyMail.com that the circumstances surrounding the stabbing are not immediately clear, though the victim was assaulted and then stabbed. 

The extent of the victim’s injuries were not immediately disclosed, but an NYPD spokesperson said the victim is ‘not likely to die’. 

Footage from the scene shows an overturned City bike overturned out the front of AC Hotel, next to what appeared to be a discarded carrier bag. 

Police do not have a description of the attacker and no arrests have been made, police said.   

Violent crime in the Big Apple continued to surge throughout September and into October, data shows.

The number of September shooting incidents in the city increased 127 percent year-over-year from 67 shootings in 2019 to 152 shootings in 2020; September murders spiked 40 percent from 246 people killed in 2019 to 344 people killed in 2020.

Submit tips to police by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, downloading the NYPD Crime Stoppers mobile app, or texting 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. Spanish-speaking callers are asked to dial 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Scott Morrison says JobSeeker Covid-19 boost WILL be extended into next year

The JobSeeker boost will be extended beyond December but at a lower rate, Scott Morrison said on Tuesday – as Labor brands him ‘cruel’ for not telling people how much they will get.

In March the government boosted the $565-a-fortnight JobSeeker allowance by $550 as millions of Australians lost work due to coronavirus restrictions.

In September the boost was extended until the end of the year at a reduced level of $250 a fortnight.

Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has repeatedly hinted the supplement will continue next year and on Tuesday the prime minister said he will extend the boost at a lower level.

‘People can expect the supplement going forward beyond the end of this year,’ he told parliament.

‘We expect the new JobSeeker rate will be lower than what it is right now… it should be higher than the old Newstart rate.’

The JobSeeker payment replaced the old Newstart benefit in March. 

The new rate is expected to be announced in mid-December. The government wants to wait until then so it can better assess the labor market as states relax coronavirus restrictions.

‘It’s sensible for us to make a decision closer to the time,’ Finance Minister Mathias Cormann told senate estimates last week. 

‘We are seven or eight weeks away from the next budget update. I think it’s entirely appropriate.’ 

Labor has slammed the prime minister for not telling people how much they can expect to receive and called for a permanent increase in the JobSeeker payment.

Linda Burney, Shadow Minister for Families and Social Services, told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday: ‘People on JobSeeker deserve to know now what level of support will be available to them beyond December 31.

‘To make them endure an anxious wait is cruel, unreasonable, and does not allow them to undertake the necessary household budgeting for food, rent and the bills.

‘The government could provide certainty by delivering a permanent increase to JobSeeker, which Labor has consistently advocated for.’

Labor has refused to say how much the JobSeeker payment should be increased by.  

Latest figures show 1.4million Australians were claiming the JobSeeker allowance in September – almost double the level before the pandemic hit Australia in March. 

According to budget papers, the supplement from June to December will cost taxpayers $16.8billion.

The figure for March to June 2020 is about $5billion, taking the total cost of the policy to just under $22billion.

MasterChef Australia star Adam Liaw reveals the takeaway meals that travel best or worst

masterchef australia star adam liaw reveals the takeaway meals that travel best or worst

Celebrity chef Adam Liaw has revealed the best and worst takeaway foods to order as Australians increasingly turn to food delivery services.

The MasterChef Australia winner said there are dishes that travel perfectly well – but he warns there are foods that don’t fare quite as well on the move. 

In a piece for The Guardian, the Sydney foodie looked at the popular meals to order – and why you should never get burgers delivered to your home.

BURGERS 

Despite being a takeaway classic, Adam said by the time your burger arrives at the door, you’ll end up eating a soggy bun.

‘The fries are irredeemable, any semblance of freshness has wilted to mush, and the sauces and meat juices have soaked into the bun,’ he explained.

But if you can’t look past the burgers on the menu, Adam said try ordering a simple cheeseburger and leave the gourmet creations for dining in.

PIZZA

Adam said pizzas are the ‘OG delivery food’ but the best way to eat them are straight out of a wood fired oven to ensure the crusts are hot and crisp.

He explained the slices are never in ‘prime condition’ after ‘steaming’ in an insulated bag while travelling across town to get to your door. 

However, Adam said the best thing about takeaway pizzas are they ‘reheat exceptionally well’.

He suggested once you place your order, turn on the oven so when your pizza arrives, place it on a tray and into the oven for a couple of minutes to ‘bring it back to its original glory’.

Adam said slow-braised curry or wet dishes are great takeaway options (stock image)

CURRY

Adam said slow-braised curry or wet dishes are great takeaway options as he finds there’s ‘little difference between delivery version and fresh in the restaurant’.

But foods made from the tandoor such as naan bread and paratha can go soggy during the transportation.

He suggested reheating the bread on a hot, dry grill pan once your order arrives.

DUMPLINGS

‘While many of us have missed the joys of circulating yum cha trolleys over the past few months, if you think about it, getting delivery is kind of the same thing except the trolley is a scooter and it travels a greater distance,’ he explained.

He said dumplings reheat well in a steamer or even a microwave.

OTHER TAKEAWAY DISHES

After sharing his story on Twitter, dozens of Australians shared their favourite and worst takeaway meals to order and their tricks to reheating them.

‘An additional hack for Indian food – put a few packet papadums in the toaster and watch very closely – until crispy in about 20 seconds. No need to fry. They add a fresh crunchy side to scoop up reheated dishes,’ Alex tweeted.

Dan explained how curries can travel for hours on the road and ‘only taste better with time’ while Michael said one of the worst takeaway meals is hot chips.

‘Hot chips because it’s such a throw of the dice as to how they’ll arrive,’ he wrote.

Heath rated ramen a one out of 10 for delivery, adding: ‘It’s bloody awful’, while Jo agreed with Adam on the dumplings, saying: ‘They have been my go to and have been perfect every time.’

jackson warne 21 reveals he never ate veggies before sas australia

He shocked the nation when he revealed he’d only ever tried ’10 foods’ his entire life on SAS Australia.

And the surprise revelations just keep on coming from Jackson Warne – as on Wednesday, the 21-year-old confirmed he had never tried a vegetable before appearing on the gruelling Channel Seven challenge show. 

Speaking on Nova 96.9’s Fitzy & Wippa, the son of cricket legend Shane Warne, 51, was asked what meals had enjoyed in the past – to which he responded: ‘toast, cereal, eggs, bacon, pizza, pasta, lasagne and apples.’

‘No vegetables?’ a surprised Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli asked. 

‘No, I’ve never had a veggie!’ Jackson responded. ‘No that’s a lie, on the course I think I tried one bean. I tried one individual bean!’ 

During the interview, Jackson also recalled the time his famous cricketer father gave him a sip of beer for the first time when he was 11 – an experience which ‘scarred him for life’.  

‘One New Year’s Eve, probably about 10 years ago, dad was super p***ed and he gave me some of his [Victoria Bitter],’ he said. 

Never again: The 21-year-old said he was 'scarred for life' after trying his dad Shane Warne's Victoria Bitter for the first time ten years ago. Pictured: The cricketer enjoying a drink at Ascot in 2013

‘I had a sip and went – “No way, never again! That was horrible!”. It was the worst thing I’ve ever tasted.’

‘I went straight onto the vodka straight away instead!’ he laughed.

However, it appears time may have changed his taste – as Jackson revealed a Corona tasted ‘pretty good’ when trying it for the first time on Wednesday.

Two days earlier, the professional poker player shared a video to Instagram of himself grimacing while eating a slice of watermelon for the first time.

Jackson is living with older sister Brooke Warne, 22, who is encouraging him to try new things.

Taking two large bites of the summer fruit, Jackson didn’t appear too pleased with the taste as he shook his head and said ‘mmm’.

Sounding unimpressed, Jackson said it ‘tastes like water’, before giving the fruit a rating of four out of 10.

Jackson made his extraordinary diet revelation last week on SAS Australia, when his co-stars noticed that he seemed confused by this dinner offering.

Convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby, 43, had to explain that it was tomato soup, and it was ‘good’ to eat.

While filming SAS Australia in August, Jackson had the opportunity to eat a variety of foods he’d never tried before, including sushi, pineapple, rockmelon, mandarins and even steak.
