Shocking surveillance footage captures the moment a man went on a wild rampage in a Queens deli — stabbing two 67-year-old victims before grabbing a wad of cash from the register.
The suspect struck just before 9 p.m. Saturday inside MSK Deli on 164th Street near 85th Avenue in Jamaica Hills, cops said.
The clip shows him standing next to one of the men — a friend of an employee — who was filling a cup with hot water when he suddenly stabs him in the chest close to the neck, causing another person standing behind him to fall over, toppling racks of items.
The attacker also stabbed the man in the head and abdomen, according to cops.
Then he turned his attention to another 67-year-old man, an employee sitting behind the counter, stabbing him in the chest and back before grabbing $300 from the register, according to cops and deli owner Karthik Jagadish.
“One guy entered the store — he was trying to get a coffee — and the person sitting here, [an employee’s friend] tried to help him,” Jagadish, 40, told the Post Tuesday. “He stabbed him first and then went outside the store, [came back] and then attacked my employee.”
The suspect then took off, heading north on 164th Street, cops said.
“We don’t recognize him,” Jagadish said. “He was wearing [a] mask and gloves so we don’t know….He doesn’t have [a] heart. Heartless people — only money, money, money.”
“He could have taken all the money and [left] them alone.”
The employee has since been discharged from the hospital — but “now he has to go through all the pain,” Jagadish said. “He is always going to have the pain now.”
The other victim is doing OK, according to Jagadish, who said he spoke with his son-in-law Sunday.
The deli had been closed since the incident and just re-opened Tuesday. Blood and bloodied paper towels remained in the store and shelves with food items were overturned.
“This is out of control,” the deli owner said. “Crime is becoming an issue in Jamaica.”
Breonna Taylor protester run down by pickup truck in Buffalo
A female pickup-truck driver revved her engine before racing through a group of Breonna Taylor protesters in upstate New York — peeling away after hitting a cyclist, according to video and reports.
The Dodge truck was caught in numerous videos revving its engines as it drove toward dozens of demonstrators who were blocking traffic outside Buffalo city hall late Wednesday.
A WKBW camera crew caught the truck smacking into a female protester — with other screaming as it tore away from the scene.
“I hear the tires screech and then I see the truck swerving,” witness Eve Shippens, a local teacher, told The Buffalo News, recalling a “tremendous bang” as the victim was sent “flying up in the air.”
The hit cyclist, identified as Karen Huffman, an organizer of local community bike rides, suffered a broken shoulder and possible fractured wrist, the reports said.
“I thought for sure she was dead,” fellow protester Dianne Britain told The Buffalo News, insisting the driver “never slowed down.”
“She never hesitated. She never stopped. There was no braking. She just plowed right there. We just watched my friend get smashed,” she said.
After the truck sped off, a small group gave chase, eventually cornering the crying female driver after she stopped away from the crash scene.
“Murderer!” screamed at least one person around the car, as caught by a local videographer who said the woman’s truck had a pro-police “Blue Lives Matter” flag on it.
Witnesses told WKBW that the driver was shouting at protesters when she drove through them, with one saying she yelled, “I don’t like y’all black lives matter.”
When she was cornered, however, she sobbed, “I didn’t mean to!” She also tried to wave down a passing police car that did not stop, the video showed.
Buffalo police told local media that the driver is a 59-year-old local woman who is cooperating with the investigation. No charges have been filed, the Buffalo News said in an update Thursday afternoon.
The protests in Buffalo were among many around the US Wednesday sparked by the grand jury decision in Kentucky not to charge any Louisville officers with killing black EMT Breonna Taylor in March.
NYC deli owner stabbed in the neck by thieving duo
A Brooklyn deli owner was stabbed three times in the neck by robbers Thursday, police sources said.
The 44-year-old deli owner was behind the counter at Friendship Deli at 5 Bradford Street in Cypress Hills around 2:45 p.m. when the man and woman came behind the counter and stabbed him, the sources said. The two stole an unknown amount of money, cops said.
The victim, whose name wasn’t immediately released, was taken to Brookdale Hospital in critical, according to police.
A police source said the duo is known to the deli owner.
“They come in to the store and cause trouble from time to time,” the source said.
There were no immediate arrests.
Man trained in family vineyard before driving into protesters: FBI
A California man has been using his family’s vineyard as a “tactical training camp” before he mowed down a group of protesters in his truck, federal authorities said.
Benjamin Jong Ren Hung, 28, was busted Wednesday on gun crimes stemming from him driving into a demonstration May 31 in Pasadena, according to a federal criminal complaint.
Federal agents detailed in the complaint how Hung drove his Dodge Ram — which was adorned with flags embraced by right-wing extremists — into a group of protesters who had been chanting, “Black lives matter here.”
”The victims were forced to run out of the way to avoid being struck,” the affidavit said.
No one was hurt in the incident, but police found a loaded semiautomatic handgun and several high-capacity magazines in the truck, the complaint said.
They also uncovered an 18-inch machete, $3,200 in cash, a long metal pipe and a megaphone, authorities said.
Federal agents allege that Hung had been stockpiling weapons and preparing for “civil disorders” on his family’s vineyard in Lodi.
The complaint said that he had been using the vineyard as a “tactical training camp” and shooting range, NBC News reported.
“Hung also amassed other firearms and tactical equipment from suppliers throughout the United States and used his family’s vineyard in Lodi, California as a training camp to prepare to engage in civil disorders,” the affidavit said.
He was charged with one count of conspiracy to transport firearms across state lines and to make a false statement in acquisition of firearms. If convicted of the gun crimes, Hung faces up to five years in prison.
