Suspect Rides Off on Bike After Allegedly Stabbing NYC Man on Park Bench: NYPD


Police released their first look at a man wanted in connection to Tuesday morning's fatal stabbing of a 34-year-old victim lying on a park bench in Manhattan.

The suspect was caught on video riding a Citi Bike moments after allegedly stabbing the man in the abdomen, police said.

He approached his victim around 3 a.m. along the Hudson River Park walkway near West 11th Street.

The victim was only stabbed once, but it proved to be a fatal blow. The NYPD said the 34-year-old was pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital.

Police obtained surveillance images of the alleged suspect and released them to the public Friday in hopes of gathering tips that could lead to an arrest.
