Police have released video footage of a knife-wielding man who stabbed two seniors while robbing a bodega in Jamaica Hills on Saturday.
The footage shows the suspect standing inside MSK Deli, located at 84-45 164 St., at around 9 p.m. on Sept.12, before lunging at a customer and stabbing the victim in the chest, head, and abdomen with a knife.
Seconds later, the video shows the assailant chasing a second man – a shop worker– and stabbing him in the chest and back.
The suspect then grabbed around $400 cash from the register and fled the scene in a northbound direction along 164th St., police said.
Both victims were transferred to hospital in stable condition — the first man was taken to Jamaica Hospital while the second man was brought to New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital, police said.
