Popular ice cream vendor robbed, slashed in Totowa
TOTOWA (WABC) -- A popular ice cream vendor needed six stitches Monday night after getting stabbed and robbed on his route.
It happened shortly after 6 p.m. on Monday. The vendor, who didn't want to be identified, was selling his cold sweet treats in Totowa when a man armed with a knife attacked him.
He says his attacker entered the truck and robbed him, slashing his arm in the process. The bleeding vendor tried to drive away, and the violent thug grabbed what cash he could and bailed out.
Officials believe the attacker began his crime spree in Little Falls, stealing a Subaru earlier Monday.
Then, he approached the truck and asked if he could go inside. After the vendor said no, he came back two blocks later and forced his way in through the side window.
The suspect is still on the loose.
