A stranger attacked a 19-year-old man with a hatchet in a Chelsea attack in broad daylight on Monday, new video shows.
The suspect approached the victim – who was riding a bicycle on West 26th Street and Sixth Avenue – just before 10 a.m. and began yelling something incomprehensible, sparking an argument, cops said.
He then brandished a hatchet and struck the teenager in the leg and foot while he was still on his bike, video released later Monday shows.
The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition, authorities said.
The attacker fled down Sixth Avenue on a black moped, police officers said.
The police were still looking for him on Tuesday.
