The NYPD has released a video of a man they say stabbed another driver repeatedly after the two got into an apparent argument on the road.
On April 23 at about 11:16 p.m. the suspect — described as a black man in his early 30s — and the 45-year-old victim parked their cars in front of 420 East 61st St., police said.
According to ABC7 New York, police say the two men had gotten into an argument over traffic on the Queensboro Bridge earlier that night.
The suspect then got out of his silver Toyota Camry, approached the victim and began to take out a knife which he then used to stab the man 11 times on his body, cops said. The suspect then went back into his car and drove away northbound on First Avenue.
The victim also got back into his gray Toyota Corolla and started to drive but then eventually crashed into a parked Mercedes Benz SUV near East 76th Street and Madison Avenue, according to authorities.
Emergency personnel took the 45-year=old to a local hospital where he is listed in critical but stable condition.
Surveillance video released by police on Monday night shows the suspect getting into his car and driving away.
