Man Wanted in NYC After Slashing Homeless Person with Halal Cart Knife, Fleeing Scene

In a desperate attempt to locate an unidentified suspect, the NYPD recently released gore-soaked photos from a brawl involving two men, near a subway station in the Jackson Heights neighborhood of Queens, New York. The incident commenced last Friday at about 9:40 pm when a 26-year-old homeless man began to act out in a chaotic fashion. That’s when he was approached by a random bystander who tried to calm him down. This only escalated the situation, as their confrontation soon went from a verbal spat to an all-out brawl.

In the midst of the fight, the bystander grabbed an eight-inch knife from an unattended Halal food cart and proceeded to slash the homeless man’s face wide open. This resulted in the assailant being drenched in his victim’s blood, as he quickly made a run for it, once he realized the damage he had caused. Since then, images of the assailant covered in blood have gone viral as the NYPD continues its search to bring him to justice. As for the victim, he was taken to Elmhurst Hospital nearby, where he required 20 surgical sutures. The wounds he sustained are not considered to be life-threatening.
