A dispute on a Brooklyn train turned violent when one man stabbed another Saturday afternoon, cops said.

The 19-year-old victim was on a Jamaica-bound J train around 3:10 p.m. when he argued with another man who suddenly stabbed him in the stomach, according to police.

The victim managed to stagger off the train at the Chauncey Street station, and paramedics rushed him to Brookdale Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect is in his 30s and about 6 feet tall with a dark complexion :rolleyes: and a medium build, cops said. He was last seen wearing beige boots, blue jeans and a black and gray jacket.

Police did not know what the argument was about.

Police have arrested the man who stabbed a teen during a fight on a subway train in Bushwick over the weekend, authorities said.

Alton Chesney, 46, was captured Tuesday and charged with knifing the 19-year-old man Saturday around 3 p.m.

The two got into an argument that eventually turned physical as they were riding a northbound J train near the Chauncey Street station, police said.

A video recorded by a fellow straphanger shows Chesney struggling with the victim before stabbing him with a sharp object in the lower abdomen, police said.

The injured man staggered off the train when it pulled into the station and found his way to Brookdale Hospital, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Chesney was charged with assault.
