NYC wannabe thief Duane Reade tries to stab the security guard with a hypodermic needle

A would-be thief in Manhattan Duane Reade used a hypodermic needle to try to stab the security guard who foiled the attempted robbery last weekend, police said.

The suspect was caught on camera moving items from the store’s refrigerated section into a shopping bag at the location on East 34 Street near Third Avenue in Murray Hill around 10:15 a.m. Saturday, the NYPD said .

When the man tried to flee with the stolen goods, the security guard approached him and the two got into an argument, police said.

At one point during the confrontation, police say the suspect pulled out the needle and attempted to stab the worker.

The clash lasted a short time before the suspect left the store empty-handed, police said. He stayed in the wind early Wednesday.

The guard suffered from pain in his left hand but refused medical attention.
