NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) Police have released new surveillance video in connection to a slashing attack on a Israeli tourist in Greenwich Village early Friday morning.

The video shows the struggle between the suspect and the victim shoving one another, CBS2s Magdalena Doris reported. A man in an orange sweatshirt can be seen pushing the victim against the turnstile door on the platform of the 6 train at Bleecker Street.

According to investigators, the victim is a 55-year-old Israeli tourist who only speaks Yiddish. He was wearing traditional Hasidic clothing at the time of the attack.

The victim was on his way from Brooklyn to visit friends in the Diamond district :rolleyes:when he got lost riding the train, Doris reported. He sat down on a bench on the subway platform to look through a map and dozed off.

At 3:13 Friday morning, police say the victim woke up to the suspect using a knife to cut through his pockets. The suspect then slashed the victim in the face, hands and neck before fleeing with cash.

The victim was taken to Bellevue hospital in stable condition.
