CONCOURSE — The man suspected of stabbing a 30-year-old repeatedly in the chest in the Yankee Stadium subway station was been arrested Tuesday, police said.

Siby Diarra, 22, is accused of stabbing his male victim several times in the torso by the B/D subway line on the 161st Street-Yankee Stadium stop on April 25 around 2:15 p.m. after the two got in a fight, according to the NYPD.

EMS took the victim to Lincoln Hospital, and he was admitted in stable condition.

Police charged Diarra with attempted murder, assault and menacing, police said.

He had previously been arrested for forgery after being caught altering MetroCards to change their fare value, police said.
