A homeless man was arrested Wednesday in the fatal stabbing of a Brooklyn father aboard an L train last week, police said.
Alvin Charles, 43, was charged with murder for allegedly knifing Tommy Bailey to death near the Atlantic Avenue subway station in East New York just before 9 p.m. Friday, police said.
The two men had gotten into an argument on a southbound L train when Charles allegedly drew a knife and stabbed the 43-year-old dad of two in the neck before fleeing, according to the NYPD.
Officers found Bailey, of Canarsie, bleeding at the Atlantic Avenue subway station. He was rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Family and friends remembered Bailey, who had a son and daughter, as a hard-working father and a “Canarsie legend” for his athletic prowess.
