A 41-year-old Dizzy’s employee was stabbed outside the 8th Avenue diner early Saturday morning, reports DNAinfo.

The victim, who was not identified immediately by police, was found unconscious outside Dizzy’s at Eighth Avenue and 9th Street with multiple stab and slashing wounds in his arms, chest, stomach and back at 2:19 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said.

The victim — a “nice guy,” according to one colleague, who didn’t offer his name — is in critical condition at Kings County Hospital. An investigation is ongoing; so far, no arrests have been made. A FiPS tipster passed by the scene a few hours after the incident and offered this account.
