A search by local law enforcement has begun for a male suspect responsible for knifing a 32-year-old Orthodox Jewish man on Thursday night in the driveway of his home in Ramapo, N.Y.

The victim’s wife heard his screams, according to reports, and ran out to find her husband covered in blood, CBS News reported.

According to the Ramapo Police Department, officers encountered a victim who had been “accosted in his driveway by an unknown suspect” at about 8:30 p.m. on Thursday.
