NEW YORK (WABC) -- A violent robbery and assault was caught on camera in the Bronx, and police are searching for two suspects.
Authorities say a man approached the 60-year-old victim from behind and stabbed him multiple times, all for a cell phone.
The incident happened just before 11 p.m. on September 17 inside the lobby of the man's apartment building on Intervale Avenue in the Longwood section.
The suspect is seen on surveillance video putting the man in a choke hold, stabbing him several times and removing the victim's cell phone.
