THE BRONX - Police have arrested and charged 33-year old Andy Diaz for robbing a convenience store and stabbing the owner in the chest and arm.

The attack occurred Wednesday afternoon at the Tremont Convenience Store and Deli on Tremont Avenue.

Surveillance video shows the suspect approaching the store owner, Vishaveet Singh, and threatening him with a knife behind the counter.
