A brutal stabbing attack in Soundview left a man with multiple wounds to his torso Thursday, and police are asking the public to help them identify the culprit.
The 34-year-old victim was standing near Lafayette and Soundview avenues when the attacker knocked him off his feet about 8 p.m. Then he stabbed him repeatedly as a group of frightened pedestrians ran from the the area, police said.
The victim’s condition was not immediately available. He was being treated for his injuries at NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi Saturday.
Police released surveillance footage of part of the attack, and ask anyone with information to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
