A man was stabbed in the back early Saturday morning on a quiet East Village block.
The 49-year-old victim was standing in front of 311 East 9th Street, between First and Second Avenues, when two men approached him and stabbed him several times, the police say. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, treated and released.
The NYPD has circulated the above video of the suspects, which shows them standing in front of Skyline Spa, a massage parlor next-door to the address in question, and seemingly heading in. According to its posted operating hours, Skyline would’ve been open at 4:40 a.m., when the incident occurred. There was no answer when we tried to reach the parlor this morning.
