A New York City man sitting on a walker and smoking a cigarette was seen on video lunging at two women and stabbing one of them with a large knife on Saturday, in what appeared to be an unprovoked attack near Times Square.

The attack took place near Port Gourmet Deli on West 43rd and Eighth Avenue on Saturday evening.

Video obtained by the New York Post shows a man walking out of the Port Gourmet Deli before placing his walker against the building and sitting on the walker’s seat.

The man, wearing gray pants, a bright fluorescent green shirt, black jacket and orange hat then lights up a cigarette, crosses his arms and reaches inside the jacket.

He then appeared to pull a large kitchen knife out of his jacket, lunged toward two women and slashed one of them before returning to his walker seat and smoking his cigarette.

The woman who was stabbed could be seen on video placing her hand where the knife allegedly struck her as she stepped back.

The women then turn around and begin walking the other way.
