MOTT HAVEN, the Bronx — Police on Monday released new surveillance footage of two men wanted in connection with the Bronx stabbing of a campaign volunteer for mayoral candidate and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.

The 42-year-old man was attacked near 149th Street and Morris Avenue around 2:30 p.m. Sunday, police said. His injuries were not considered to be life threatening.

The suspect ambushed the volunteer from behind as the victim reached out to shake someone’s hand, additional surveillance video obtained by PIX11 News Monday afternoon shows.

Authorities said they believe the man wearing a red bandana and a white tank top is the assailant.

Police said he fled the scene on foot, heading southbound on Morris Avenue, accompanied by the second man seen in the video wearing a gray sweater and beige pants.

Contrary to what Adams said on Sunday, police on Monday morning said they believe a knife was used to stab the victim multiple times, not an ice pick.

Cops did find an ice pick at the scene but it belonged to the volunteer, according to authorities.

Police said the attack was not politically motivated.

According to the NYPD, the victim has over 40 prior arrests, including rape and firearms charges. They said he has not been cooperative with the detectives investigating the attack.

Police said they’re looking into whether a past feud between the victim and the suspects was what motivated of the stabbing.

The volunteer underwent surgery on Sunday evening, according to a tweet from Adams.

“We pray for him,” the mayoral hopeful tweeted. “This violence must stop.”

The victim had been “working hard [and] volunteering every day,” Adams wrote on Twitter..

Mayoral contender Andrew Yang also tweeted about the stabbing.

“Horrible news. My thoughts are with your volunteer, their family, and your entire team, Eric,” he tweeted.

Candidates Maya Wiley, Scott Stringer, Kathryn Garcia and Shaun Donovan also tweeted about the stabbing.
