NYC Chase Bank stabbing suspect caught

An Upper East Side man was arrested for attempted murder when he stabbed a Chase Bank guard in Manhattan, police sources said.

Jorge Santiago, 34, was arrested by the NYPD Warrant Squad on the Einstein Loop in the Bronx at 12:30 a.m. Saturday, the sources said.

Santiago was taken to the 19th Precinct, where he requested a lawyer when investigators began questioning him, the sources said.

Santiago reportedly had two knives at the time of his arrest, but it was not immediately known if the weapons were the same ones used in Friday’s attack, the sources said.

The Manhattan Attorney’s office was scheduled to execute a search warrant on Santiago’s East 96th Street apartment, the sources said.

Santiago has been charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault and third-degree criminal weapons possession, the sources said.

Santiago is skilled at handling a blade, the sources said.

The guard is in stable condition at Weill Cornell Medical Center.

In April 2013, he was arrested for hitting another man in the face with a box cutter in the Bronx, the sources said. The victim was treated for his wounds at Jacobi Medical Center. The disposition of this case was not immediately available.

In the latest incident, Santiago allegedly visited Chase Bank on East 86th Street near Second Avenue before it opened and first asked the guard to let him in, the sources said. He then left and came back later, only to get out of hand when he was later told the services he needed would have to be done over the phone, police and law enforcement sources said.

The security guard was escorting the man out of the bank just after 9 a.m. when he drew a blade and jabbed it in the security guard’s throat while the two were in the anteroom, cops said.

The security guard is in stable condition at Weill Cornell Medical Center, police said Saturday. NYC Chase Bank stabbing suspect caught
