A 41-year-old woman walking in Brooklyn with her two children the day after Christmas was knifed in the stomach by a stranger, according to the NYPD.
The family was walking near 45th Street and Eighth Avenue around 6:30 p.m. Sunday when the man walked up, pulled out a knife and slashed her in the gut. She only suffered a minor laceration and was taken to a hospital for treatment.
The mom is expected to be OK; no physical injuries were reported to her children.
Cops say the suspect was last seen running south on Seventh Avenue. They released surveillance footage of him jumping a turnstile at a nearby subway station (above).
