(Flickr) (Newser) – All he did was ask them to pipe down. But when Ralph Carnegary made his request to a group of rowdy women on a New York subway, they allegedly stabbed him in the shoulder, the New York Post reports. Carnegary, a 63-year-old vendor, was heading to work when he encountered the women, aged 17 to 20. Arrested outside the 23rd Street station—while holding beers—they screamed that they "didn't do anything," a witness said. Carnegary is in stable condition at Bellevue hospital.
