A 60-year-old man was stabbed in the neck twice outside of the Rehoboth Open Bible Church between Avenue H and Glenwood Road Friday afternoon.
According to police, the victim got into a dispute with an unidentified individual who stabbed him with an unknown object then fled with the victim's car, a 2004 Black Chevy Silverado.
Neighbors say they are in shock this happened.
"I saw all the police here last night but this morning I found out about it," said Dyrick John, 15-year-resident of East Flatbush. "I didn't really know what happened last night because I was tired yesterday, so I just went inside and waited, and this morning I saw something. But neighborhood is very quiet and very safe."
Another neighbor told News 12 he is afraid for his family, and his young niece.
"I have a four-year-old niece, and it's scary at night a little after 10 o'clock, and now I have to watch out during the day," Luis Lema, neighbor, said.
The victim was taken to Brookdale Hospital and was listed in stable condition as of Saturday evening.
Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
