The NYPD is investigating after a man was set on fire aboard a subway train in Manhattan.

According to authorities, a 23-year-old man was riding a 1 train that was pulling into the Houston Street station at around 3 p.m., when a 49-year-old man threw something flammable at the 23-year-old man as the train was pulling into the station.

The victim was taken to the hospital in stable condition with injuries to the neck, chest, and arm.

A police source told FOX 5 NY's Jessica Formoso that the suspect is known to them and has a criminal record. 

A 49-year-old suspect was later taken into custody, although he has not been charged at this time.
