The attacker and the assault was captured on several surveillance cameras inside and outside of the store.
In the video a man, who the New York Police Department describe as 6-foot-2, 220 pounds and between 30-40 years-old, appears to trail another unidentified man in to the small convenience and quietly walks behind him near the cash register. He then pulls out a blade measuring around four or five inches in length and stabs the victim in the buttocks five times.
The victim, who did not appear to know he was being followed, swung his arms behind himself to fend off the attack. Seconds later, the knife-wielding man briskly walked away from the scene and on to the street.
Police say they do not know what, if anything, provoked the attack. The 48-year-old victim was reportedly in stable condition following the assault.
