Fight over scooter ends in stabbing at Hell’s Kitchen deli

Posted on

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — A man was stabbed outside a Manhattan deli last week moments after fighting over a scooter, video shows.

The NYPD released video late Tuesday showing the violent dispute outside Moal Grocery & Deli at 10th Avenue and W. 51st Street in Hell’s Kitchen last Wednesday night.

The video shows the suspect paying at the register near the front of the store when a man grabs a scooter beside him. The man pulls the scooter outside and is chased by the suspect, who snatches the scooter back, video shows. It’s unclear who owns the vehicle.
