A tourist from Washington State was walking in Midtown Manhattan with friends when he was stabbed in the back of the head with a steak knife, causing non-serious injuries.

From Patch.com:

Steven Tlapanco, 20, was charged with attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon, police said. Tlapanco, a resident of Washington Heights, has been accused of stabbing a 23-year-old tourist in the back of the head with a steak knife on Dec. 18, police said.

The tourist, originally from Washington state, and a group of friends were walking in the vicinity of Madison Avenue and East 46th Street around 1:40 a.m. when Tlapanco approached the group from behind and stabbed the man in the head near the neck, police told Patch.

Tlapanco also scratched the face of one of the tourists’ female friends before fleeing in the direction of 5th Avenue, police said.

At least it wasn’t a gravity knife. I’ve heard those are deadly.

  1. So… someone was walking around the city impeded who, apparently on a whim, decided to attack some random joe with a steak knife?
