The Brooklyn man who claims he was sodomized by city policemen on a subway platform is recovering after being stabbed in the arm.

Police say Michael Mineo was attacked Friday after a dispute with George Alejandro, 41, on Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn.

Witnesses tell the Daily News that Mineo confronted Alejandro after he bumped into Mineo's girlfriend.

Police later arrested Alejandro and charged him with assault and weapons possession.

Mineo was treated at the hospital and is in stable condition.

Last year, he accused three city cops of sodomizing him with a baton in a Brooklyn subway station.

The officers have been indicted in that case and Mineo is suing the city for $220 million.
