Police say the man, 66, bleeding from multiple stab wounds in his chest and back walked into the midtown south precinct around 11:30 p.m. where he collapsed.

He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators say the stabbing was a result of a dispute between the suspect and the victim near the southeast corner of West 36th Street and Ninth Avenue, though it's unclear why the pair fought and what sparked the violence.

The person of interest is described as a man with blonde hair; last seen wearing a black coat, brown shoes and dark colored pants.
