He was reportedly defending a 34-year-old woman who was slashed in the cheek after four unidentified males and one unidentified female snatched her purse which contained her cell phone, medication and a benefits card.
According to Dailymail UK report, the male victim got into a verbal dispute with an unidentified assailant. It’s unclear what his relationship is to the woman.
He was stabbed in torso and head with a kitchen knife in New York City near 120 West 125th Street in Harlem, said police. The victim grimaces as a crowd gathers around to film him. The incision did not penetrate his skull, said the report.
He was taken to a hospital in Harlem while both victims were in stable and non life-threatening condition.
Police had made no arrests on Tuesday evening. They are still investigating.
