MIDTOWN MANHATTAN — A man walking along a Manhattan street was attacked from behind before a group of young men jumped him, leaving him with stab wounds, video surveillance released by police shows.

Officers responded around 5:40 a.m. Wednesday to a call of a stabbing near the corner of West 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue, right near the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

Surveillance video shows one of the suspects using a rod-like object to strike the victim from behind. When the 62-year-old man fell to the ground, six other young men then approached the victim, stabbing and slashing him, police said.

Police believe the suspects are teens.
