Police are searching for two people in connection with the violent robbery of a 60-year-old man in the Bronx.
The attack happened at around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday in a building on Intervale Avenue.
Police say Subryan Banggaroo was entering the building when a man forced his way in behind him and put him in a chokehold.
They wrestled, according to police, and Banggaroo was stabbed twice in the back and once in the chest.
The attacker ran off with his phone.
Banggaroo was treated for his wounds at the hospital.
He's lived in the neighborhood for 16 years and said that when he saw his attacker's knife, he thought his life was over.
"He was telling me to give him my wallet, and I said no. That's when he had the knife, and I looked at the knife. He had a cap and a hoodie over," Banggaroo said. "Not really a good look because at that time, so much things were going through my head."
Police say the female suspect stood guard outside while the incident occurred.
Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
