"A 36-year-old was taken into custody at the scene," cops continued. "No charges have been filed, but the suspect remains in custody. The investigation is ongoing."

The 31-year-old victim has been identified as Dante Lekarius, and the 36-year old suspect as Ernest Dubinsky, according to the New York Daily News.

In the shocking surveillance video, viewers can see Lekarius calmly sitting on a crate outside a deli, eating a bagel and sipping tea. Dubinsky suddenly approaches him, and is seen speaking to Lekarius for about five seconds before taking out a 10-inch knife and stabbing him directly in the chest.


Apparently in shock, Lekarius gets up and tries to escape, while the crazed stabber follows him.

Lekarius walks towards a cab collapsing on the ground.

The knife has been recovered by detectives.
