East Harlem Deli Worker Fatally Stabbed

By Anna Shultz –

Tonight, an employee at the Gourmet Deli on 2nd Ave. in East Harlem was stabbed just out front of the deli. 

The employee has been identified as Ahmed Almulaiki and he was pronounced dead after being taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Witnesses say that Almulaiki, prior to being stabbed, was involved in an altercation with a customer who he had refused to credit to. This customer exited the store and began pounding on the store’s windows. Almulaiki went outside to approach this individual and it was at this time that Almulaiki had been stabbed. 

The New York City Police Department has identified the suspect as a Hispanic male, around 30 years old who at this time has not been arrested.
