MANHATTAN — A homeless man was in a dispute with a group of men near the southeast corner of Union Square when they pulled a blade and stabbed him in the chest Monday morning, police said.

The 39-year-old man, whose name wasn't immediately released, was feuding with the men near East 14th Street and Union Square East about 3:30 a.m., an NYPD spokesman said. It wasn't immediately clear what the dispute was about or how many men were involved.

They stabbed the homeless man in the chest and fled, police said.

He was treated at Bellevue Hospital where he's listed in stable condition, police said.

There were no immediate arrests, police said.
