A man was stabbed inside a Manhattan restaurant last week after he refused to give the suspect money, police said Monday.
The panhandler walked up to the 30-year-old victim inside Pee Dee Steak House, located at 50 W. 125th St. in Harlem, on Friday around 2:10 p.m. and demanded cash, according to police.
When the victim declined to give him anything, the suspect stabbed him in the shoulder with a steak knife before running out of the restaurant, cops said.
The victim had to be taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem so that the knife could be surgically removed from his shoulder, according to police.
The NYPD released surveillance images of the suspect on Monday. No arrests have been made.
