    A man was robbed and stabbed in Worcester, Massachusetts, and the attack was caught in camera.

    It happened Monday evening and started with the victim having a gun shoved in his face. It ended with that man on the ground, stabbed. His attackers ran off.

    The surveillance cameras on a house on Acton Street captured it all. Just after 7 p.m., a man is seen lingering outside. A second camera caught his attackers, around the corner, moving in.

    The assault took less than a minute.

    One man walks by the victim then turns back, pulls a gun and shoves it the victim's face. The second attacker moves in. Police say he had a knife and the pair demanded money.

    The victim is seen giving them what he has, then punches are thrown. The man with the knife lashes out, stabbing the victim in the back. He drops to the ground as the attackers run off, escaping toward a nearby school.

    Several people called 911 and emergency responders arrive minutes later. The victim is expected to be OK.

    The man who put up the surveillance cameras did not want to be identified. He said he put them up because street crimes like this one happen all too often in the neighborhood.

    Police are looking for two men in their 20s. Anyone with information is asked to call Worcester Police.
