The Good Samaritan came to the victim’s assistance before a man who was accompanying the thief pulled out a sharp object and slashed him in his wrist.
The pair then fled the location.
The female victim did not seek medical treatment, while the man was transported by EMS to NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst in stable condition.
Police released photos of the suspects.
