Man Stabbed After Confronting Urinating Stranger in Greenwich Village

A man was stabbed in Greenwich Village on Wednesday afternoon after confronting a stranger who was urinating in public. The incident occurred around 4:10 p.m. outside a condominium building on Downing Street near Varick Street. The 27-year-old victim noticed the man relieving himself and called him out for his inappropriate behavior, leading to a physical altercation.

During the fight, the assailant plunged an unidentified sharp object into the victim’s right side of the stomach. After the attack, the suspect fled the scene, heading south on Varick Street. The injured man was promptly transported to Bellevue Hospital for further evaluation.

The suspect is described as a man with a medium complexion and slim build. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a blue vest with a black hoodie underneath, gray pants, and brown boots. As of Thursday, law enforcement authorities have not apprehended the attacker.

This violent incident follows a similar case in the East Village a few weeks ago. In that incident, a caretaker confronted a man urinating on a car, resulting in a vicious slashing with a box cutter. The victim, identified as John Mach, sustained a deep gash on his neck, requiring 16 stitches. No arrests have been made in that case.
