Man wanted in connection with stabbing in NYC museum arrested by Philadelphia police

According to the Philadelphia Police Department, on Tuesday early, police arrested a man accused of stabbing two employees on March 12 at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.

He was taken into custody without incident by Philadelphia police officers after they caught him on a bench at the Greyhound bus station in Center City.

Police say Cabana stabbed a 24-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man at MoMA, both of whom are MoMA workers. The suspect refused entry to the museum, so he stabbed both victims multiple times.

In a statement, his press secretary said that on March 12, Mayor Eric Adams was briefed on the incident. In addition, he said that the mayor would continue to monitor the investigation and recovery of both victims, who are listed in stable condition.

Fabien Levy said that the incident appears to be an isolated one. Neither victim is suffering from life-threatening injuries, he added.

Apparently, Cabana leapt over a desk and stabbed the workers as they fled. Video taken on the inside of the museum shows Cabana jumping over the desk and stabbing the workers.

Miller said he was upset at not being allowed entrance and then charged and stabbed two museum employees multiple times after jumping over the reception desk.
