NEW YORK (AP) — Police in New York City are seeking the public’s help in finding a man who randomly stabbed an out-of-state tourist in the back of the head with a steak knife last weekend.
Twenty-three-year-old Connor Rasmussen of Puyallup (pyoo-AL’-up), Washington, was in Manhattan after surprising his girlfriend with a marriage proposal when he was stabbed around 1:40 a.m. Sunday near Madison Avenue and East 46th Street.
Rasmussen says his assailant stabbed him in the back of the head without saying a word. Rasmussen required eight stitches.
Police on Wednesday released photos and video footage of the suspect, who is wanted for questioning in connection with the stabbing.
