Suspect sought for stabbing 3 homeless men in Manhattan

A pattern of stabbings in Manhattan over the past week led NYPD brass to ask for the public's help on Tuesday to find their suspect.

Police said a man, who appeared to be in his 30s and was shown in surveillance footage wearing a hoodie and neon sneakers,

stabbed three homeless men, including one fatally, as they were sleeping on separate occasions over the past week.

The suspect used what was described as a large kitchen knife, according to one eyewitness, the NYPD said.

"These are senseless acts on defenseless people experiencing homelessness," NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said

Tuesday as the department showcased surveillance images of the suspect they're after. "

Chief Kenneth Corey said officers have been canvassing parts of Manhattan to ensure homeless New Yorkers are aware of the suspect.
