March 15 2022 Philadelphia – A suspect in the stabbing of two employees at the MOMA museum in New York City this the weekend, was arrested early Tuesday morning in Philadelphia, according to the NYPD.
Police has identified the suspect as Gary Cabana, 60, and released video that it said showed him attacking workers at the museum.
The arrest of the suspect was reported earlier by Steve Keeley with a Fox News affiliate in Philadelphia. He wrote that Cabana was arrested outside a Greyhound bus station at 1:30 a.m.
He was reportedly arrested for arson charges for a hotel fire he allegedly started at a Best Western hotel in Philadelphia. Philly cops made a connection once the suspect was in custody.
On Monday afternoon, NYPD evacuated Midtown church St. Francis of Assisi for an investigation involving a search for the MoMA stabbing suspect, after a bystander spotted the suspect and reported the sighting to nearby officers. A man fitting Cabana’s description was seen entering the church wearing a faded black hoodie, brown pants, blue sneakers, and holding a white plastic Duane Reade shopping bag, sources told FNTV.
ESU and police K-9 units were requested at the scen to aid the search for the suspect. Several emergency vehicles arrived on scene to close the block to pedestrian traffic. The search went on for about two hours until the scene was given the all clear. According to police, it still has yet to be determined if Cabana was the individual spotted and eluded capture again or if the call was a case of mistaken identity.

“They knew who I was all along but the morons wasted hours searching the museum” – Gary Cabana MOMA SUSPECT
Cabana has even criticized the NYPD’s handling of the situation on Instagram as he is still on the loose for the crime of assault with a deadly weapon.
“They knew who I was all along but the morons wasted hours searching the museum when I was obviously long gone. With hundreds of witnesses watching but no heroes in the crowd that day.” Said Cabana
As the search continues Cabana, MoMa stabbing suspect takes the time to respond to our FNTV Journalist and other platform users asking him about him thoughts on the event. When asked what’s to come of all this, Cabana responds to FNTV,
“A bad one act play by some NYU student, possibly a book, most definitely a movie with Bradley Cooper playing me. But his leap across the counter (done by a look alike Hollywood stuntman) will look effortless while my jump looked like the tin man from the Wizard of Oz trying to do an Arthur Fonzarelli car hood slide or am I thinking of Starsky and Hutch original TV show.”, said Cabana
On March 12, two female MoMa employees were stabbed Saturday afternoon in New York City by a crazed patron. At around 4:15 p.m. Saturday afternoon, a 60-year-old man attempted to gain entrance, presenting a membership card and was denied entrance because his membership had been revoked and because of two prior incidents involving disorderly conduct at the museum on two separate recent dates leading up to the attack.
Police said the 60-year-old man became irate soon jumping over the reception desk and proceeded to stab two female museum employees multiple times about the body. According to police, the two MoMa employees were stabbed multiple times in the back, collarbone, and in the back of the neck. Both women were rushed by EMS to Bellevue Hospital where they received immediate medical attention and the two employees are expected to survive their injuries, police said.
The alleged attacker was caught on surveillance footage fleeing the museum on foot and police were able to put out an immediate description for officers canvassing the area. The 60-year-old man involved in today’s MoMa attack is also wanted for questioning in two other separate incidents that occurred in Midtown, said police officials. The attacker is described as a white male, last seen wearing a black jacket, a blue surgical mask, also under his jacket, a colorful patterned shirt with a hood.
No arrests have been made and as of Saturday evening. The suspect is at large but is known to the police for past interactions. The investigation into this incident is ongoing and the search for the suspect continues.
