The suspect in last weekend’s stabbing at the Museum of Modern Art was arrested in Philadelphia early Tuesday morning, according to the NYPD.
Gary Cabana, 60, has been on the run since Saturday night’s incident. He was arrested by Philadelphia police at approximately 1:36 am and awaits extradition to New York for arrest and arraignment.
Although he remained at large, Cabana opened up to a Post reporter on Instagram on Sunday evening.
“When they said I couldn’t go upstairs to see STARRY STARYY NIGHT EVER AGAIN, I lost my composure.”
After losing his job in January, so was Cabana charged with criminal harassment after sending threatening emails to a woman in the office of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.
Authorities suspected Cabana possibly fled to Philadelphia when a look-alike under the name “Joseph Cabana” checked into a Best Western motel. On his social media accounts, Cabana listed his middle name as “Joe.”
Philadelphia police also searched Cabana after the Best Western guest set a fire in his room, causing the motel to be evacuated Monday night.
