New York City police charged a man with murder after a series of subway stabbings left at least two dead.

Reports on Sunday said 21-year-old Rigoberto Lopez was taken into custody in connection with at least four stabbings that took place over a 14 hour period starting late Friday. Police said Lopez, who was likely homeless, wounded two people and killed two others in separate incidences along the subway’s A-line.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said 500 officers were redirected to patrol the transit system during the search.

“They can expect to see a very large footprint of uniformed officers deployed throughout New York City,” Shea stated. “Whether they go onto a train, onto a platform, and they’ll be there as long as needed to make sure people feel safe.”
