THE BRONX — A man slashed a Fordham bodega customer after menacing the store's cashier with two knives, police said.

The suspect, who can be seen on police video released Monday, walked into the convenience store at 77 E. Kingsbridge Rd., near Creston Avenue, about 2:50 a.m. on Feb. 21 with a knife in his left hand and slammed it down on the counter before pulling another smaller knife out of his pocket, according to police and the video.

He then pulled out a wad of cash and flipped it open before pointing at the person behind the counter and stabbing the smaller dagger into the Newport cigarettes ad emblazoned on the countertop, video shows.

The suspect, who hadn't been arrested as of Tuesday morning, then turns towards the door and rushes out of frame, as the video cuts off. He went on to stab an 18-year-old customer, police said.

The victim was treated at St. Barnabas Hospital, police said.

It wasn't immediately clear why the suspect attacked the customer, police said.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
