Police are searching for a man who stabbed a Jackson Heights food vendor during a dispute on Thursday morning.

According to the NYPD, a 40-year-old man operating a food truck at the corner of Roosevelt Avenue and 92nd Street at around 2 a.m. on Aug. 10 got into a verbal argument with a Hispanic man in his 30s. It is not clear if the men knew each other.

Police said the man walked away but then came back with a knife and stabbed the food vendor three times in the torso. He fled on foot in an unknown location.

Officers from the 115th Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. The vendor was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital in critical condition.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
