NEW YORK (AP) - Officials say a man is hospitalized in stable condition after being stabbed near Times Square.

Police say it occurred on West 45th Street at 4:45 p.m. Wednesday, about a block from the Hirschfeld Theater.

The stabbing took place after an altercation in front of the single-room occupancy Aladdin Hotel.

Police say the suspect used a box cutter to attack the victim. They say the two men did not know each other.

The attacker fled the scene but was arrested a few hours later.

Police identified him as Cory McGee of Manhattan. They charged him with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a controlled substance, which police identified as crack.

It wasn’t immediately clear if McGee had a lawyer.
