Police are searching for a knife-wielding suspect who slashed a man in the neck before robbing him of his electric scooter in Sunnyside early Saturday.

The suspect approached the 51-year-old victim in front of Rite Aid, located at 46-12 Greenpoint Ave., at around 1:50 a.m. and asked him to hand over his e-scooter.

When the victim resisted, the suspect displayed a knife before slashing the man in the neck and stabbing him in the torso.

The suspect then fled the scene with the victim’s e-scooter, police said.

The victim was transported to Elmhurst Hospital by EMS in stable condition.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing around 150 pounds.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Until Curtis Sliwa becomes our new mayor, anyone riding scooters or high-end bicycles are only making themselves targets for crime. Saw this coming when the scooter trend became more popular. We have to return to our old ways when we never displayed anything valuable while on the streets or subways.

If they catch him and he gets arrested he’ll be out by dinner time and the poor victim will be stuck with his injuries, scars and a huge hospital bill.

Looks like they were hanging out together at 1:28AM and then the suspect decided to attack him. Looks like he got the victim’s phone too.
