CANARSIE, Brooklyn (PIX11) — A Wendy’s worker stabbed a 44-year-old co-worker at the Brooklyn restaurant on Monday night, police said.

The victim, 44, was stabbed in the chest during a dispute at the Wendy’s near the intersection of Ditmas and Remsen Avenue, officials said. He suffered serious injuries.

Police said the attacker fled the scene in a Wendy’s uniform. Officials have not yet said what the dispute was about. Detectives could be seen interviewing witnesses at the Wendy’s after the stabbing.

Assemblymember Monique Chandler-Waterman, who represents the district, was also at the scene. She said to confront issues of violence, there needs to be more programming for youth and resources, especially for housing, in the community.

“My main priority when I come on a scene: is the community OK? Because it’s traumatizing,” she said. “So whether you’re a victim or not, just seeing it, hearing about it, me coming here, it’s traumatizing because this is not normal.”
