A Flushing man has been arrested for a stabbing at  John F. Kennedy International Airport Friday after getting involved in a dispute with another man.

The incident began outside of Terminal 8 around 4:45 p.m., then spilled into a parking lot, where one of the men stabbed the other above the left eye, according to the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey.

Port Authority Police detectives arrested livery cab driver Guang Zheng, 50, at 10 p.m. in Flushing after he drove off in a 2007 bronze Acura, said Port Authority of New York & New Jersey spokesperson Joe Pentangelo. Zheng was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon

Zheng was also arrested by the Port Authority Police last month for operating an illegal livery cab at JFK Airport, according to Pentangelo.

The stabbing victim, who was transported to Jamaica Hospital after the incident, suffered non life-threatening injuries, said the spokesperson.
