An aspiring fashion designer from the Bronx was stabbed to death in a Soundview subway station Saturday—killed by the very man he held the emergency gate open for, authorities said.

Rudolph Dunning, 25, died from stabs wounds suffered during a fight with that man around 4:30 a.m. inside the Morrison Avenue-Soundview station. Dunning’s 28-year-old cousin was also stabbed in the attack, and is expected to recover, authorities said.

A day after the subway homicide, police charged suspected stabber Ramziddin Trowell, 42, with murder, attempted murder, and criminal possession of a weapon.

Authorities said Trowell and Dunning had words shortly after Dunning held the gate for him. But the subject of their beef was not immediately clear.
