An argument over the price of a salad led to a stabbing at the Big Apple Grocery, 219 East Broadway early this evening.

According to Channel 7, two women began quarreling with a clerk at around 5 p.m. They left the store, located on the corner of East Broadway and Clinton streets, and returned with a male companion. The man also exchanged words with the clerk and reportedly threw a trash can at the door.

Police say the male suspect got into a physical fight with the store employee, pulled out a sharp object and stabbed him in the arm. As you can see from these photos taken by David Tufino, there was a lot of blood on the floor of the deli.

The suspect fled the scene. The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment.
