New York City Police has named a 20-year-old suspect accused of stabbing a  16-year-old Brooklyn girl in broad daylight while she was entering a deli more than a week ago. 

Police has identified the suspect as Osie Lewis, who is still on the loose. 

Shocking footage from the May 22 incident released by the NYPD on Wednesday shows the teenager entering the Urban Juice Bar & Grill in Brownsville around 6 p.m.

The perpetrator then fled the scene. The girl was taken to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center and has since been discharged, the New York Post reported.  

The scene comes despite NYC Mayor Eric Adam’s vow to crackdown on crime in the city, which is up nearly 40 percent from the same time last year.

The NYPD is asking anyone with information in regard to Lewis’ location to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

He was described by authorities as medium complexion, about 150 pounds with a thin build, and having black hair and goatee.

New Yorkers have been growing weary over the spike in violence and crimes on the city streets and subways.

While murders and shootings are down 9 and 6.5 percent respectively from 2021, overall crime in the Big Apple is up 38.42 percent so far in 2022.

That includes an 18.4 percent rise in felony assaults, a 16.1 percent increase in rapes and a 39.3 percent jump in robberies.

Vagrancy has also been on the rise in the city, with Adams ordering wave after wave of officers to take down homeless encampments throughout the city since March.

Adams also launched his subway safety initiative in April, sending about 1,000 officers into the city’s busy transit system to weed out crime and vagrancy, yet both continue to persist to the point where some New Yorkers are even taking justice into their own hands. 

Last Friday, a group of men were filmed restraining and beating up another man suspected of trying to sexually assault a girl at the Fulton Subway stop in Manhattan.

The clip, shared online over the weekend, shows one man restraining the suspect, while two others take turns to rain blows down on him. 

It has been presented as a racist attack by some advocacy groups online given the suspect was an Asian man, but others have claimed the punching was an act of vigilante ‘justice.’

They say the victim had tried to molest a girl on train shortly before the beating began, according to the New York Post. 

One of the men could be heard saying: ‘You touching girls, you touching girls — little sisters and all that, moms and everything. You filthy, son.’

Another was heard to remark that he had a daughter, and that he’d pay his own bail if he was arrested. It remains unclear if any of the allegations made against the victim of the beating are true.
