A man is clinging to life after he was stabbed during a bloody confrontation on the Lower East Side, police said Wednesday.
The 48-year-old victim was standing on Eldridge St. near Delancey St. when she got into an argument with her attacker around 6 p.m. Monday, police said.
As the two argued, the assailant pulled out a knife and plunged it into the victim’s chest, police said.
Medics took the victim to Bellevue Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
The stabber ran west on Delancey St. and has not been caught.
It was not immediately clear if the two men knew each other or what the argument was about.
On Wednesday, police released surveillance footage of the suspect in the hope that someone would recognize him. He is Asian and was wearing a cream colored bubble jacket.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
