NYC police seek man who stabbed a tourist in the head

NEW YORK – Police in New York City are looking for the public’s help in finding a man who randomly stabbed a out-of-state tourist in the back of the head with a steak knife last weekend.

Twenty-three-year-old Connor Rasmussen of Puyallup (pyoo-AL’), of Washington, was in Manhattan after surprising his girlfriend with a proposal of marriage, when he was stabbed, around 1:40 pm, Sunday, near Madison Avenue and East 46th Street.

Rasmussen says that his attacker stabbed him in the back of the head without saying a word. Rasmussen needed eight stitches.

Police on Wednesday released photos and video footage of the suspect, who is wanted for questioning in connection with the stabbing.

The man was last seen wearing a black skull cap, black sweat pants, black sneakers and a black Michael Jordan jacket.
