Ronald Cundiff was convicted by a jury in February for the July 30, 2019, incident in which he knifed a 55-year-old straphanger who had asked him to move his bag from a subway seat on an A train downtown.
As two cops tried to arrest him, he stabbed one of the officers and a 21-year-old good Samaritan, both in the shoulder, in an incident caught on cellphone video.

The subway victim was stabbed in the torso and needed his spleen removed.
A Manhattan judge handed down the sentence Thursday for Cundiff’s conviction on multiple assault charges and criminal possession of a weapon.
“The subway is the backbone of our city, and we will hold accountable anyone who attacks their fellow straphangers,” Manhattan District Attorney Bragg said in a statement. “Not only did Ronald Cundiff stab a rider who was looking for a seat, he also stabbed a good Samaritan and a police officer who tried to stop him.”
Cundiff’s criminal defense attorney didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
