Police Arrest MoMA Stabbing Suspect

The suspect who reportedly stabbed two employees at the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) on Saturday was arrested in Philadelphia.

Gary Cabana, 60, reportedly jumped the reception desk at the building and stabbed two MoMA workers repeatedly last Saturday after being denied entry.

“Detectives found the 60-year-old suspect — fitting the description — he was actually asleep on a bench inside the Greyhound terminal. Police took him into custody, woke him up. The individual did not resist, did not fight,” said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.

Philidelphia police added that Cabana set fire to his hotel room at the Best Western on Vine Street before going to the Greyhound terminal.

Cabana’s victims, a 24-year-old woman, and a 24-year-old man are expected to survive.  

Cabana will be extradited to New York to face charges while the MoMa has reopened last Tuesday.
