Police are on the hunt for a man suspected of a stabbing over a parking spot in Brighton Beach last week.
The 48-year-old victim, Vladimir Reyfman, was sitting in his pickup truck on the corner of Brighton 11th Street and Brighton Beach Avenue when the suspect came to his window. Reyfman was asked to pull up so that the other driver could fit his car into a spot, but Reyfman explained that there was a truck ahead of him that was unloading, and he didn’t want to get too close to it.
The suspect then disappeared into a nearby bodega, but when he came out he went straight to his car, got a knife, and plunged it twice into Reyfman’s chest. The victim was taken to Lutheran Hospital and will survive the attack.
“If he was any thinner, the punctures would have killed him,” a source told the Daily News. “There was a lot of blood in the car.”
The suspect is described as 40 years old, about 5-feet-11 and around 250 pounds. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
