A man trying to hit on women as they walked out of a Whole Foods Market in Brooklyn stabbed one in the hand after she got into her SUV Monday night.
NYDN: A retired police officer turned security guard ran to the woman’s aid and busted the man in the parking lot of the swanky supermarket’s Third Ave. and Third St. location in Gowanus, cops said Monday.
“He was checking out women as they came out of the Whole Foods,” said one man, who witnessed the 9:30 p.m. mayhem, but didn’t give his name. “One of them looked at him like, ‘Not today.’”
She got into her vehicle, and that’s when the man turned violent, he said. “I heard the scream,” the witness said. That’s when the retired cop drew his gun and ordered the man to the ground. An NYPD spokesman said the guard wasn’t a former NYPD officer. What agency he once worked for remained unclear Monday night.
The suspect’s name has not yet been released, and charges against him are pending.
