The NYPD is looking for a suspect they say stabbed a 66-year-old man in the back in an unprovoked attack on April 9 outside 150 E. Seventh St. between Avenue A and Avenue B. 

Police say the stabbing occurred just before 11 a.m. 

The victim, who sustained a cut to his back, was taken by EMTs to NYC Health + Hospital/Bellevue and is in stable condition, per 1010 WINS. (CBS New York has a report here.) 

-- Updated 7 p.m. --

ABC 7 has an interview with the man who was stabbed, Arnaldo Mendinueta.

"Mendinueta said he has been in and out of prison, working with his parole officer to get his life back on track, and wonders if the suspect is someone from his past, trying to settle a score."


The NYPD released an image of the suspect last night...
Anyone with information that could help in the investigation is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). You may also submit tips online. All calls are strictly confidential.

The violence in our community has escalated sadly for some time. It makes me wonder what we should do or bring in our bags to protect ourselves.

@ck Although frightening, it is no where near as violent here as it was in the 80s.
