Police in Massachusetts are looking for a suspect they said stabbed a gas station cashier over the weekend.
According to Quincy Police, a man entered Bonfiglioli's Auto Saturday afternoon purporting to be a customer looking for a lottery ticket. When the cashier came from behind the counter to explain they do not carry tickets, surveillance video showed the man then lunged at him with a knife.
"It's disturbing to watch," said owner Stephen Bonfiglioli.
After a robbery at gunpoint earlier this year, Bonfiglioli installed a new security system to address safety concerns. He did not, however, expect another attack to happen so suddenly.
"It's tough," said Bonfiglioli. "You try to come to work every day and you have to deal with stuff that shouldn't happen."
Based on the video, police said the suspect was 5 feet, 9 inches tall, wearing jeans and a dark coat. After he charged the cashier, the men wrestled over the knife in the shop and the parking lot. The man then cut the cashier's hand before running away.
"It's traumatic for them," said Bonfiglioli. "Hopefully, they'll get him."
According to police, they have received several tips in connection with the case.
