Cops Release Photo of Suspect Behind Sunday’s Bodega Stabbing

Posted on: May 9th, 2018 at 5:04 am by

The 7th Precinct yesterday released a photo of the man suspected of knifing an employee of the Big Apple Food Market on East Broadway.

The incident, which transpired this past Sunday, was much ado over the price of salad. According to published reports, two women got into an argument with one of the deli workers at 219 East Broadway. Officials said that the women then left the store and returned with the perp, who then grabbed a garbage can from the sidewalk and threw it at the door.

Fisticuffs ensued, and the suspect brandished a knife and stabbed the employee in the arm. He then fled the scene.
