The 84th Precinct is investigating a robbery and stabbing at Joralemon St. and Columbia Place that occurred Tuesday morning at about 6:33 a.m. The robber approached the 55-year-old male victim from behind and grabbed his bag containing his wallet and laptop. When the victim tried to reclaim his bag, the robber stabbed him in the upper right arm. A neighbor, who heard the victim’s screaming, looked out her window and yelled that the police were called. The neighbor and her husband then ran outside to find the victim sitting on a bench outside the River Deli and another neighbor using pieces of cloth to stop the victim’s bleeding. Several more neighbors came to help until an ambulance arrived to take the victim to the hospital.
