“That’s very shocking, very shocking,” resident Pamela Charry said in a related CBS article. “People are home by 6 p.m., kids play outside, so it’s very safe. So to hear something like that is a little scary.”


The suspect could have been jogging as well, police said to the New York Daily News. After slicing the inch-long gash into the victim’s thigh, he ran off.

The victim was taken to Elmhurst General Hospital and is in stable condition, according to CBS.
