Horrific Video Shows Man Randomly Stabbed in Broad Daylight in NYC

Newly released video shows the shocking moments a man was randomly stabbed on the Upper East Side on Thursday.

In a 16-second clip tweeted Saturday by the NYPD, an assailant wearing all black, with his face covered by a balaclava mask, is shown getting off a bike before swinging at a 29-year-old stranger with a large knife.

The video captures the victim — wearing a baseball hat and white mask and carrying a brown paper bag — trying to escape the knife-wielding man by back peddling away from him. The attacker then wildly swung the weapon while chasing him off the sidewalk and onto the road, the footage shows.

Watch:

During the caught-on-camera, broad-daylight assault, the wounded man was slashed multiple times in the back and left arm, according to police. Cops said the victim did not know the alleged stabber.

The stabbing occurred on the sidewalk near a subway entrance at the East 63rd Street and Third Avenue Q and F train station just before 2 p.m., police said Thursday.

The NYPD is searching for the assailant, who the department said Friday is about 30 years old with a medium build. He was riding a black E-bike when he stabbed the victim without provocation and fled the scene in an unspecified direction, police said.

Police said medics rushed the victim to a nearby hospital, where he was in stable condition.

  • Once again, it is the condition of the set of morals and values, not guns, that reveals evil. Unprovoked man trying to kill another. That is a sick condition in the heart. Can anyone say Biblical principles are needed?

    Knives, clubs, bottles or bricks can all be used as an assault weapon. WE must address mental illness not an inanimate object. That won’t happen because mental illness is least understood is illusive and will never be prevented or controlled. It is easier for politicians to convince some to blame a tool instead of the fool.

    If the man had only had a gun he could have put the fool down with a knife.
    But that’s right in New York it is to dangerous for you to have a gun.

    Poor old fella needed concealed carry permit. Then we would be rid of this evil pig with the knife.

    WE MUST HAVE COMMON SENSE KNIFE CONTROL! KNIVES ARE ONLY DESIGNED TO STAB AND CUT, HOW COULD YOU EVER TOUCH ONE, THEY’RE EVIL! – give it time, we’ll hear that here too, they already tried in in the UK, even posting “BEWARE! CRIMINALS ARE POSING AS FISH MONGERS TO APPEAR TO HAVE A GOOD REASON TO CARRY A KNIFE” on tTwitter.
