Man Stabbed To Death In Dispute Over Not Saying “Thank You” in New York

The police said the victim got upset when he opened the store's door for the suspect and the suspect did not say ‘thank you.'

In a shocking incident, a 37-year-old man was stabbed to death on Tuesday after he got into an argument at Smoke Shop in Brooklyn, New York.

The incident happened at around 10.20 pm at Park Slope Convenience on 4th Avenue in Park Slope.

The police said the victim got upset when he opened the store’s door for the suspect and the suspect did not say ‘thank you.’

“It was just about not saying ‘thank you’ for opening the door for him,” employee Kharef Alsaidi said as he reopened the bodega.

Alsaidi said the victim opened the door for the suspect and then asked, “Why don’t you say, ‘Thank you for opening the door’?”

The suspect responded, “I didn’t tell you to open the door for me.”

The verbal dispute quickly escalated to a physical altercation that spilled outside the store, and the victim is said to have taunted the suspect, telling him, “Stab me if you can do it.”

According to authorities, the suspect grabbed a knife from his bicycle and stabbed the victim in the abdomen and neck.

“The victim started screaming, ‘He stabbed me, he stabbed me,'” Alsaidi said.

He said the victim stumbled back into the store, “bleeding all over the floor.”

The man was rushed to New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. There have been no arrests so far.

Alsaidi said he tried to de-escalate the problem by telling the guy, ‘Just put the knife away. He’s not worth it. It’s not worth it. I did my best to de-escalate, but nothing worked.”
