GREENWICH VILLAGE — A 28-year-old man was stabbed inside a 14th Street subway station following a fight in a nearby McDonald's restaurant Saturday, police said, marking the latest violent incident to stem from one of the fast-food chain's locations in the area.

The victim was stabbed several times in the 14th Street station of the 1, 2, 3, L, F and M trains about 6:20 p.m. that evening, police said.

The beef that ended in bloodshed began inside the McDonald's at 154 Seventh Ave., near 14th Street.

The suspect — who was caught on subway surveillance video — is between 40 to 50 years old, stands between 5-foot-7-inches to 5-foot-9-inches tall, and was last seen wearing a light blue striped shirt and dark pants. 

The Village's other McDonald's location, at 136 W. 3rd Street near Sixth Avenue, has been a hotbed for violence, including an alleged anti-LGBT hate crime in September and a videotaped beating in October 2011.
